Evanton Wartime Remains
During the first half of 2013 a group gathered at the Cornerstone Cafe on Wednesday evenings to remember and research the wartime remains in Evanton. Using old maps, photographs (some over 90 years old), aerial photographs from the wartime and later, military archives and plans, memories spanning over 70 years and details gleaned by walking over the area, information was gathered for over 300 sites. Some pupils from the Kiltearn Primary school, Inverness Young Archaeologists Club and Dingwall Academy also joined in recording remains and learning about the wartime and later activities in Evanton. Most of the recorded sites relate to wartime remains, but a few other unrecorded sites were also noted. The sessions were organised by ARCH which provides opportunities for people interested in learning about and helping to preserve their heritage.
Evanton Wartime Remains was funded by the European Community Highland LEADER 2007-2013 Programme, Kiltearn Community Council’s Novar Windfarm funding (supported by RWEnpower renewables), The Highland Council, the Cooperative Membership Community Fund and the Robert Kiln Trust.
