2011 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

Date 1 January 2011 - 31 December 2011

Event ID 1108048

Category Project

Type Project


During 2011 RCAHMS aerial reconnaissance continued its recent focus on the west coast, operating between Ardnamurchan and Gairloch, with a block of flying also undertaken in the Western Isles. The particular emphasis on the recording of maritime and coastal landscapes has been maintained, working in partnership with Dr Colin Martin of the Morvern Maritime Centre and Dr Jonathan Benjamin of Wessex Archaeology Coastal and Marine. Large numbers of features along the shore have been recorded for the first time, including fish-traps and slipways. The cropmark season was a complete washout due to the weather; non archaeological recording focussed on landscapes and buildings, predominately in the south-west and north-east.
