Field Visit (9 February 2010 - 12 August 2010)

A settlement, annotated as ‘Red Cleiugh’, is first depicted on Roy’s map of 1747-55. The same settlement, annotated as Raecleugh and Raecleugh, is also shown on subsequent maps including Ainslie’s map (1821), Thomson's map (1822), and Crawford & Brooke’s map (1843). By the Ordnance Survey 1st Edition map (1862) the settlement is shown as a rectangular steading with associated farmhouse and three other rectangular buildings. The farmstead is currently occupied and forms a working farm. Although the farm has been modified much of the late-19th century farm buildings, as shown on the 1st Edition map, have been retained.
