Scope and Content This slightly blurred image shows the Beauly Firth at very low tide, revealing sand banks and two crannogs. Coulmore crannog, at bottom L, is the smallest of the five "crannogs" in the Beauly Firth group, measuring 25m long and 18m wide. Carn Dubh, R of centre of image, is a substantial crannog sited in the intertidal zone of the Beauly Firth. An oak timber from it has been radiocarbon-dated to the early iron age while a vertical pine pile has been dated to the 17th or 18th centuries.
