Not the norm for an apiary site but it had the advantage of being sheltered from the wind but not the occasional shower! More photos in Gallery.

Saturday 2nd July - Muir of Ord, Jane Thomson. Too wet to open hives, so a pleasant social afternoon was enjoyed by everyone.
Saturday 18th June - 2pm - Arthur Hill's apiary at Scatwell. Fortunately the site was sheltered from the strong winds but we didn't escape from the showers. Our thanks go to the Estate and the ladies of the Community who provided tea in the Community Centre. Also we thank Pam Piercy and David Thomson for sharing the duties of demonstrating.
Wednesday 18th May. Fairfield Apiary, Urray. An event for beekeeping beginners (less than 5 seasons experience). A good turnout, but the weather could have been better, a bit too windy and cool. Some useful experiences gained.
Saturday 14th May Kay Liston's apiary at Lochcarron. Once again an interesting and informative session in a glorious location. Our thanks go to Kay and her husband for their hospitality.
Wednesday 20th April - Annual General Meeting. St. Clements Church Hall. A very significant meeting as we were required to make appointments for the positions of President and Secretary. Bill Cormack has kindly agreed to stay on for another year but the position of Secretary was not resolved.
Saturday 19th March - Bee shed assembly took place at Brahan. Photos available here.
Wednesday 16th March - Bryce and Elizabeth Reynard gave a presentation on "Swarm control and catching and hiving a swarm." This was a practical demonstration (minus bees!). It was a great shame that the acoustics in the Maryburgh Hall meant that members lost a great deal of the useful information being presented.
Memberships are renewed as from the April AGM. A link to the membership/ renewal form can be found on the "Joining the Association" page. A new password will be forwarded to you by the Membership Secretary.
