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 full restoration will cost $2.5 million and we plan to have the Hector fully rigged and operational in time for the 250th anniversary of the Landing of the Ship Hector which will take place September 15, 2023.
