A9 (Perthshire) Properties Archaeological Survey

An archaeological survey of the North Perthshire Properties (Dunkeld - Stanley Hill, Tay riverbank and the Hermitage, Killiecrankie, Linn of Tummel and Craigower summit) was conducted during the winter of 1999-2000. The results largely confirmed what was known already about the various properties: that the Dunkeld properties were heavily influenced by mid- to late 18th century landscape design, much of which survives; and that the Killiecrankie/Pitlochry properties were little settled, but nevertheless have several well-preserved remains dating to the past 300 years.

A wide diversity of monument types are recorded, including a small settlement, bridges and communication routes, remnants of two garden schemes and several features relating to management of the River Garry. Most features are in a stable condition with little apparent threat.
