Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989. Nester Lovat Farm. There can be seen protruding from the river at low tide the round wooden piles of a wharf which was constructed, perhaps early last century, when the river was embanked further upstream, reclaiming the Carse of Lovat for cultivation. An estate map of 1800 reveals that there was a woodyard situated downstream at OS 543467. The township at the pier was known as Baile-chul. <1>
