About the Club

Ever since its foundation in 1880 Banffshire Field Club has held regular talks on a wide range of topics relating to the historic county of Banff. Typically these include social and political history, architecture, geology, natural history, archaeology, literature, agriculture and even murder and mayhem.

The Club continues to meet on the second Saturday of each month from September to April (with the exception of January) in the form of a lecture about some aspect of Banffshire and occasionally neighbouring areas. Talks usually last for about an hour, followed by refreshments and an opportunity to meet others with similar interests. 

Visitors are always welcome to attend our talks. 

Location: St Rufus Hall, Turner Street, Keith, AB55 5DJ (see map below) 

Time: 2.15pm 

Charges are £10 for annual membership, £3 for attendance at  talks by members and members of other local heritage groups, and £4 for visitors. The £3 and £4 includes tea and biscuits.

In addition to monthly talks, two outdoor excursions are arranged during the summer. Details of these can be found on the current programme page nearer to the summer break.
