In cooperation with the Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust, Eigg History Society has been involved in a variety of projects to make the island’s history accessible to all. Amongst these are the Eigg Photographic Archive, the Cleadale Crofting Museum, and the Kildonnan Archeology project.

The Society also organises regular guided walks on the island, invites guest speakers on a variety of topics and publishes a yearly newsletter.
