Rogart Heritage

Archaeology & Heritage

Welcome to our newly updated and expanded website

Rogart Heritage Society was formed to record and preserve the history of the parish. The quest is ongoing in that we are constantly finding fresh information and coming across new images and documents for our archive. Now that we are developing our website we are able to make so much more available, wherever you may be in the world.

If you have documents, pictures or stories that you would like to add to our archive please get in touch. We would love to hear from you!

AGM 2019/20

Despite the global pandemic an annual meeting of the society is necessary so that we can file the relevant documents with the Scottish Charities Regulator before the end of the year. As a physical meeting is not permitted we are holding the Annual General Meeting by email. 

We will circulate the documents to existing members (anyone who has been a member since September 2019) by email.  If you are not a member but would like to take part in the AGM please contact us to join the society. Membership is £5 a year.

Rogart Heritage cèilidh goes national

On Thursday 20 December there’s a chance to see one of our famous Rhilochan cèilidhs on national TV.

The much loved programme, This Farming Life, featured our former Chair, Penny Calvert, and husband Robin on their Reidchalmai croft. Shortly after filming ended Penny and Robin semi-retired to a small 36 acre farm on Sanday, Orkney.

Ceilidh at Rhilochan School

One of the TFL episodes included snippets from a Craic & Cèilidh where you can spot several well known faces. If you want to catch up with this 2016 event then check out BBC 2 at 7.00 am on Thursday 20th December. Yes, that is 7 o’clock in the morning, not evening!

Rogart 150 – Craic & Cèilidh, Friday 12 October

Our next event will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the railway’s arrival in Rogart. A must for anyone who would like to see what the station once looked like, the numerous staff that were necessary to run this busy place and its twists and turns through time.

The short talk accompanied by photographs will be followed by an informal house cèilidh.
