The purpose of the survey was to discover if anything was left of 'Easter Aviemore' and record any features found. Daily walks along the 'Orbital Path' had shown remains of rigs in the fields, and vague lines of possible walls. A corn kiln was also noticed adjacent to the path. Further exploration was indicated and the survey began, as a solo effort by the author. The initial survey was by walk over, followed by a field sketch of ephemeral walls and field boundaries, and plane table survey of structures found, after Anne Wilson and Edwin Wakeling, had been recruited to help. A lot of the research involved estate maps, and study of the aerial photos. The newspaper index of Highland Council's bilingual history and culture website, Am Baile was consulted, and copies of relevant articles obtained through Inverness Library. <1>
