Update – Kirk o’Muir and De Graham’s Castle Archaeological Excavation


Update – Archaeological Excavation Kirk o’ Muir and De Graham’s Castle – Heritage Lottery Project

We are awaiting consultancy reports on metal detecting, coring and excavation at de Graham and Kirk o’ Muir sites.

Watch this space!

Message from Murray Cook., Stirling Council Archaeologist 

We are hoping to explore a steep-sided ditch feature that is either a medieval fish pond (less likely) or some form of defensive ditch (more likely). At the same time we intend to look to see if we can identify any dam elements with a bit of fieldwalking. There is also of course the chance to see one of Scotland’s best-preserved timber castles…..it really is fabby!

Our host for the morning will be Richard Tipping, late of Stirling Uni, who is an expert in all things coreable and polleny!
