Administrative History In August 2008 RCAHMS undertook an archaeological and architectural survey of the Cape Wrath Training Centre (CWTC), Highland. The survey followed an approach by Defence Estates, a component of the Ministry of Defence, to provide, in partnership, a baseline survey to enhance the historic component of the Land Management Plan for the CWTC. The survey set out to record all visible archaeological features and architectural structures, map them using differential Global Positioning System, digitally photograph them, and assess and record their condition using criteria defined by Defence Estates. The survey also recorded all the redundant and current boundaries around and within the centre.
