Collection Papers of James Sloan Bone, landscape historian, Inverness, Highland, Scotland

Catalogue Number DP 343651

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content This image covers an area rich in archaeology. In centre of image, leading away from camera, is a long trackway, at the far end of which the settlement or farmstead of Lettoch was recorded on the 1st-edition OS map. The two fields to left of the track contain field systems and two sub-rectangular enclosures revealed as cropmarks of similar shape to each other, the left-hand one smaller and very faint. There is also a ring ditch occupation site in the lower left corner of the field nearest the track. To the right of the track are 4 main fields. In the 3rd field, a ring ditch and pit circle are recorded. The small green, trapezoidal field at the near end of field 3 contains an occupation site and standing stone, the latter readily visible on enlargement of image. Several other occupation sites can be found on Pastmap within the area covered by the image, including one now within the industrial estate. The latter includes an aircraft hangar relocated from the wartime airfield at Evanton. The limitations of this particular image make it difficult to be certain, but the hangar may be the black building just visible at extreme lower right corner of photo, slightly blurred by the windscreen.
