The entries are written on velum and beautifully bound in Scottish goat skin.  There are 3 volumes and during 2017 these will all be digitally scanned and saved to disk.  Copies are available in the Centre during their absence.

We believe that apart from its intrinsic interest to the people of Newtonmore and their relatives at home and abroad, this will prove an interesting source of information about life in a small Highland village in 1999 for future generations to enjoy.
