There are several ideas on what can be done with the building, but an exciting option is to relocate the family history service and registrar's service from the current Highland Archive building and install it there, similar to the set up at centres such as the Burns Monument Centre in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire. Personally, I'd be delighted to see this - but then I'm possibly a little biased as my grandfather and great grandparents used to live at View Place, next door to the building!
