Iolaire 100, Margaret Ferguson

31 Dec – 2 March 2019

An overwhelming collection of 100 portraits created over the past 2 years of sailors lost and saved on the Iolaire. One for each year that has elapsed to the Centenary. The collection, supplemented by other artefacts, evokes a powerful human, personal and individual dimension as well as embodying the dreadful scale of the tragedy.

There will be a public opening at 4pm on Saturday 29 December.

A gallery pack is available to accompany this exhibition in both English and Gaelic. The pack has a series of activities for primary school aged children to enjoy as part of the exhibition. You can download the packs below:
