Other information

The Banffshire Field Club has an archive of printed lectures given since its foundation in 1880 until the practise ceased in 1939. These papers, or 'Transactions', record the business at each meeting along with a lecture given by an invited expert. The subjects cover all aspects of interest relating to Banffshire, covering archaelogy, astronomy, biology, botany, excursions/field trips, geology, geography, nature, science and social history. Many of the Transactions are available for purchase: please consult our website for details.
