Organisation:Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd
Date:Feb 2014


A topographic survey of the surviving vitrified stone walls and earthworks enclosing the summit of a hill at Craig Phadrig, to the west of Inverness City was carried out by Rubicon Heritage Services during February 2014 on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland. The purpose of the survey was to provide an enhanced baseline record of the upstanding remains at the site to inform future conservation and management of the monument. The survey covered an approximate area of 15,730m², centred on the visible upstanding remains of the monument and including an immediate zone around the site as determined by local topography. The results of the survey enabled the production of 3D digital terrain models. <1>
