Since its foundation the Trust has sold more than 30,000 books, covering every aspect
of life and history of the people and places of the town and surrounding district
and has also recorded the stories of working life and leisure of the inhabitants
of this corner of Scotland with the creation of a collection of recorded discs and
tapes and written manuscripts which are available for public research.
We have also actively encouraged and aided the local authority and other bodies in
archaeological research and the development of historic walks and trails and the
provision of plaques and markers for appropriate sites.
