Scope and Content Several epochs of agricultural settlement are embraced in this image. Prominent at centre left is the Culdrain field system, with hut circle and clearance cairns sunlit. To its left, in upper left sector, are clearance cairns in the Cnoc-an-t-Sidhein field system. A smaller system lies to its right, within the black curve of the road. Beyond the isolated triangle of woodland lies the hill named Skiag, with a further field system. All 3 of the latter systems are recorded as "Blairmore". At the triangular road junction at lower centre is the former township of Achnagarron, which includes 2 farmsteads and a corn kiln. The Achnagarron Poorhouse was located to the right of the prominent U-bend in the road nearby. Towards the lower right edge is the black outline of a longhouse forming part of the farm of Balclaggan, which had up to 5 tenants in the early 19th-C. Finally, the Church of Rogart, St Callan's, with its burial ground, is hidden beyond a copse of trees at the right-hand bend in the road in upper right sector of image. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
