'This list of [250] sites and monuments in North-east Inverness has been prepared by archaeological surveyors attached to the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland as part of a project financed by the Scottish Development Department and sponsored by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

The items listed range in period from prehistoric burial-cairns and forts to deserted farms of comparatively recent date. The following categories have been omitted from the list: buildings eligible for listing...; buildings in towns; medieval and later sites in the medieval burgh of Inverness; roads, railways and canals; most structures of 19th-century and later date'.

The records of archaeological sites included in the RCAHMS list for NE Inverness, published in 1979, were revised in December 2021 and January 2022. This task included updates to their location, classification and period, the creation of digital site-area polygons and the arrangement of site descriptions under a project heading. Revision was undertaken by Darroch Bratt and George Geddes.
