About the Glasgow Morven Association
The Morven Association was formed in 1936 and wound up in 1988. It was begun, like so many others, by a group of exiles who wanted to maintain an interest in the area and its people. Originally membership would only be open to natives of the area or their descendants but eventually included those who had a love of the district.
In the 1950s there were around 50 of these clan or district associations, many of them using the Highlanders' Institute in Berkeley Street for their gatherings.
The war memorial 'Cottage by the Shore' at Lochaline, was opened by Glasgow Morven Association in 1950, as a free holiday home for Morven ex-servicemen and exiles.
