RCAHMS: The Archaeological Sites and Monuments of The Black Isle

Date March 1979 - July 1979

Event ID 1107712

Category Project

Type Project


The records of archaeological sites included in the RCAHMS list for the Black Isle were revised in 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 managed by George Geddes, HES.

'This list of [168] sites and monuments in the Black Isle 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 as buildings of special architectural or historic interest under the Town and Country Planning Acts (Scotland); buildings in towns; medieval and later sites in the medieval burghs of Cromarty, Fortrose and Rosemarkie; roads, railways and canals; most structures of 19th century and later date'.
