In 2014 ARCH provided a number of courses, field trips and other activities exploring and researching the remains of the 19th century engineer, road and church builder Thomas Telford. A project was undertaken in Kyle of Sutherland, during which many sites were visited and photographed by participants. 'The Goat Wife: Portrait of a Village', by Alasdair Alpin MacGregor (1939) tells of his childhood brought up at Cnoc na Moine, and the surrounding area. The ruins of the cottage can still be seen, as well as the walnut tree and the bases for the greenhouse. In the book Ardgay is called 'High Wind'. The book contains a number of photographs of the area. <1>
