2007 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

Date 1 January 2007 - 31 December 2007

Event ID 545626

Category Project

Type Project


Aerial survey in 2007 continued to redress the regional and thematic imbalances in the RCAHMS oblique aerial photograph collection. In the W reconnaissance was concentrated on Jura, Mull, Morar and southern Skye, while further to the N parts of Easter and Wester Ross were explored. In all of these areas holdings of known monuments were enhanced and there was a good return of previously unrecorded monuments. The wet summer prevented the development of cropmarks; consequently, flying resources were allocated to a concerted programme of recording architectural subjects and urban areas, focusing particularly on monuments related to Thomas Telford and civil engineering.
