Since the pandemic our 14 members of staff have been working from their homes, successfully teaching more than 200 students a semester. In the last six months alone we have welcomed 17 new postgraduate students to the Centre (bringing our masters’ student numbers up to 160+ individuals, all around the world) and we’ve added three new PhD students and two MRes students to our fold.

Our success is very much Dornoch-based. As you know we occupy some of the best rooms in the Burghfield and eight of our permanent staff live locally. Nearly all our PhD and MRes students move to the wider area to undertake their research and are giving back to the communities they work with in many different ways. We attract significant funding, conferences and cultural attention to this part of Sutherland and are of great interest to the MSPs in the area! Our staff are involved in some of the most important cultural economic initiatives in the Highlands and are making deep and lasting contributions to people’s understanding of themselves and their history. We are, in no way whatsoever, an ivory-tower institution.
