Thousands of people from across North America can trace their origins to the Ship Hector. Over the years many visitors to the site have enjoyed exploring the ship and learning more about their ancestry.
Clan associations and individuals from around the world have supported our vision and have allowed us to continue to tell the story of these brave Highlanders who were seeking a new life in a new land.
You can help us with the Restoration Project—all contributions are gratefully accepted.
The Charting Our Course campaign, which is funding the restoration, has raised over $1.8 million for the ship, and community and corporate support will help us achieve our target of $2.5 million to complete the project. The relaunch of the Hector is planned for 2024 when outfitting components and underwater systems are in place.
