Event Details

The next presentation in the Friends of the Argyll Papers seminar series 2021/22, will take place on Friday 21 Jan 2022 at 15:00 GMT when Iain Connon will be talking about ‘Colintraive and the Campbells of Southhall’.

Iain will give an overview of the Campbell Lairds of Southhall - six diverse lives spanning a couple of hundred years. Over the course of half an hour Iain will tell a few stories about each of the lairds and their impact on the life of the community. To set the context, Iain will show where Colintraive is and why it got its name and, starting in 1685, note the impact of the Argyll Rebellion both on the community here and the demise of the Ellengreg Campbells who sold their land to Peter Campbell at the beginning of the 18th Century.

The seminar will be given on Zoom.
