The Munro Legacy Story

Saturday 25th May 2019 - Friday 31st December 2021

The Munro Legacy Exhibition ended on 18th May 2019 after a very successful 11 weeks in the A K Bell Library, Perth. The Executive Committee decided it would be well worth taking the posters, pull-ups and photographs from the Exhibition to other areas in the country over the next 2 or 3 years, as the Munro Legacy Story. In 2019 it was held in the Glen Doll Ranger Centre, the Aros Centre in Portree, the Three Villages Hall in Arrochar, the Torridon Community Centre, the Central Library in Dundee and at the Dundee Mountain Film Festival and Eden Court in Inverness. We also have had a limited version at the JMT AGM at Birnam and our own Annual Dinner at Grantown-on-Spey. 

The new TMS Journal No 5 has an appendix with reproductions of all the pull-up banners and posters. The Journal will be on sale at each of the venues at a cost of £10 plus p&p per copy. To buy one on-line please email: info@themunrosociety.com 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic all of our dates for 2020 have had to be postponed or cancelled. However, we have managed to re-arrange dates for Gairloch. The new museum, a former Cold War nuclear bunker, has just been crowned one of the UK's best museums. It is one of five in the UK to share the annual 'Museum of the Year' title.
The details are as follows:

GAIRLOCH MUSEUM
Gairloch, IV21 2BH
DATES: Tuesday 27th October 2020 - January 2021 (closing date still be finalised)
Due to current restrictions they are limiting visitor numbers and are advising pre-booking to guarantee entry.
Book by emailing office@gairlochmuseum.org or call 01445 712287. 

We are hoping to continue the roadshow in 2021using some of the venues previously arranged for this year, in addition to some new ones. 

As soon as we have confirmation of more venues and dates they will be posted on the website.
