Date 2/6/2012

Collection J S Bone

Catalogue Number DP 342786

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content The photo shows Ben Nevis (Britain's highest hill), Carn Mor Dearg (both at the top) and the lower hill of Meall an t'suidhe above Fort William. The start of the path up Ben Nevis is clear on the lower slopes of Meall an t'suidhe and also the Football ground from which the Ben Nevis race starts each year. The ruins of a weather observatory are found at the top of Ben Nevis (operational 1883-1903). The houses in the picture are in Claggan just to the North of Fort William and the pipeline and the penstock which feeds the hydroelectric plant for the aluminium smelter (built in the 1920s) is in the middle left of the picture. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
