WeDigs in Wester Ross

A two year archaeological project surveying and digging roundhouse and hut settlements at Ullapool, Achiltibuie, and Gairloch.

Small pits are being dug at each of six roundhouse sites centred on Achiltibuie, Ullapool and Gairloch.

  • What were our prehistoric ancestors like?
  • When did they live here?
  • How did they choose their house sites?
  • How were their houses designed?
  • Did they farm the land around their houses?
  • Did they fish? 

This exciting project is aiming to answer some of these questions.
