Following a bit of a hiatus over the summer, the steering group will be taking a major step in the weeks and months ahead with the compilation of a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI). This pivotal document draws on the Project Design conceived in the early days and the many questions surrounding the basic timeline and phases of occupation of the castle. These are now augmented by the exciting survey results from our collaboration in the spring with Nosas (North of Scotland Archaeological Society) which has amazed us all with newly revealed features not evident in Beaton’s original survey in 1883. This WSI will underpin a future excavation bid and associated permissions and funding applications.
