1985 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

Exceptionally poor weather severely reduced the summer flying season, but there was limited success from upland reconnaissance. Ground survey confirmed the existence of several important new sites identified during 1984, including a Roman fort at Drumlanrig (Nithsdale District. Dumfries and Galloway) and three fortlets at Sanquhar (Nithsdale), Caerlaverock (Nithsdale) and Carnwath (Clydesdale District, Strathclyde).

A catalogue of sites recorded in 1983 was issued and preparation of the 1984 material for publication has begun.
