EHG3772 - Heritage Along the Kyle Line - Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh

Technique(s)

Organisation

Archaeology for Communities in the Highlands (ARCH)

Date

2010-2012

Description

ARCH undertook a research project into the existing heritage along the Kyle line between 2010 and 2012. Three groups, one each at Lochcarron, Achnasheen and Dingwall, researched this heritage, producing displays for each area and binders of information. A final class met to produce a leaflet featuring some of the heritage along this route, a display of Dingwall Station which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2012, and MP3 commentaries. The project was part of ARCH's Stop, Look and Listen project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the European Community LEADER 2007-2013 Programme, with support from Highland Council and Scotrail. A Microsoft Access database was produced to record changes to existing monuments in the Highland HER as well as new monuments. <1>
