Welcome to Hebridean Connections, where you will find over 74,900 records on the people, places and stories of the Western Isles. Begin by searching for a person or place with the search facility to the left, or jump straight into the records by clicking on one of the photographs below. Advanced and map-based searches can be accessed using the tabs above. Instructions if needed are found on the support page.
Hebridean Connections was conceived by the voluntary Comainn Eachdraidh (Historical Societies) in the communities of Bernera, Uig (now blogging at ceuig.com), Pairc (cepairc.com) and Kinloch on the Isle of Lewis, with generous input from Hebridean descendents around the world. Data from the communities of Berneray in the Sound of Harris and Carloway on Lewis is currently being input. The project is gradually expanding to include North Tolsta, North Lochs, Ness, and Westside, and ultimately we hope the whole of the Outer Hebrides.
We are always please to receive comments, suggestions or queries and can be reached via this contact form.
For more community information visit the Uig and Bernera and Lochs and Berneray websites; for tourist information, see Visit Hebrides.
