Who are we?

We are a small group of amateur beekeepers based in the Dingwall area but serving the Black Isle northwards to Evanton/Alness in the east and westwards to the West Coast of Ross-shire where we have members.

We meet on the third Wednesday of the month.   In the winter we meet in the St.Clement's Church Hall at the central Dingwall car park at 7.30 pm when we aim to have a speaker or film show followed by refreshments to encourage further socialising. Guests are welcome as this is a very good way to get an introductory flavour regarding beekeeping. Guests are invited to make a £2 donation.  In the summer we hold apiary meetings in the evening, commencing promptly at 7pm weather permiting! If there is a demand we hold on Saturday afternoons hands-on sessions aimed at potential and inexperienced beekeepers.

We are governed by a committee of members representing all corners of our area. We meet regularly, using Zoom, and minutes are availabe to members through the [MEMBERS ONLY] menu.

The President, Angie Dunn can be contacted by email. or by phone 07732 587084

The Secretary, Barbara Gray can be reached by email. or by phone 0774 8932231

As a member you will have access to a [MEMBERS ONLY] page where  you will have access to a list containing equipment available for you to borrow, plus access to the [LIBRARY] of documents, dvds and books.

We have an active Facebook page enabling members to exchange information, experiences and to ask for advice.

We have prepared a 2-fold publicity leaflet which can be accessed here.

If you would like more information write to or e-mail our secretary . . . or just turn up at one of our meetings to learn more. Potential beekeepers are always welcome, all we ask is a donation of £2 towards expenses.

If, after reading the material on this web site, you are interested in joining the Association then you can download an Application Form by clicking here  and post it to the Treasurer/Membership Secretary, Sam Smith.


With increased resources we can buy more educational material in the form of videos etc. for hiring out to members and even have a hired video available for each meeting which can stimulate discussion and an exchange of ideas. Beekeeping is not an exact ‘science’ or ‘craft’, but we can learn by each others experiences and be more informed beekeepers.


Library books and DVDs are only available to fully paid-up members from the library box during the winter. Members are asked to bring books with them to meetings. Books are normally available for loan for 3 months. Members may access the lists of books and DVDs currently held click here.
