Resurrecting Rob Roy
Explore history hands on in the heart of Rob Roy’s glen, search for dwellings, roads and tracks with the help of a team of experts. The RSPB Reserve at Inversnaid has a rich archaeological and cultural heritage which is largely unexplored. A plan from 1719 by the Board of Ordnance shows the Inversnaid garrison and additional huts or houses to the north with associated tracks and field-systems. The site was lived in by Rob Roy and is directly associated with historical events during the 18th century. At an initial site meeting between RSPB, The Great Trossachs Forest, Clan Gregor, Northlight Heritage, and University of Glasgow we explored a phased approach for development of a research project which could be of considerable interest and importance- this event is the kick off for this process.

The day is going to consist of a morning walk across the site to identify archaeology with people attending the event. the afternoon will be spent exploring the site, ideas and options for future research activities, volunteering opportunities and training needs, and share and celebrate events.
