Archaeology on the National Forest Estate


Duns and brochs form an important part of Scotland’s heritage, and one that often catches the popular imagination. RCAHMS has teamed up with Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) to digitise over 100 plans and photographs of many sites, including some well-known brochs, supporting research and education projects undertaken by FCS and partners. The collection includes the drawings of the broch at Torwood near Stirling, recorded in detail by RCAHMS in the 1950s, as well as a series of images of the well-preserved broch Caisteal Grugaig, Glen Shiel. Making these images available online helps to promote not only the archaeological sites themselves but also the work of RCAHMS in recording and understanding our heritage, and that of FCS in actively managing and promoting significant sites on Scotland's national forest estate.
