WHERE - Glenleraig Beside the B869. East from Drumbeg, go through Nedd and downhill to cross the head of Loch Nedd, then up the hill and look out for parking spots by the fir trees on the right and further along the road on the left.

WHAT - 18th century houses that were abandoned when Glenleraig was cleared in 1812. We want to discover how the houses and the finds within them compare with others excavated in recent years.


Comeand get involved or just see what we're doing

Come for as much or as little time as you want between 9.30am and 4pm each day.

Come prepared for bad weather, wet ground and midges - though it might be dry, warm and sunny!
