On Tuesday afternoon, Nicky MacLennan introduced us to the Cnocan Burraidh Heritage Project. She exlained the purpose and significance of the site as a memorial and private burial ground for the Grant family.
We explored the burial site and examined the gravestones.
We managed to find 27 of the 31 graves. We’ll discover more about the individuals buried there in the new year.
When we got back to the classroom, we compared maps using the https://maps.nls.uk/ site. We discovered that hand drawn maps differ quite a bit from satellite images.
Next term we’ll find out more about all the different roles and jobs needed on a restoration project like this.
A huge thank you to Nicky for a fascinating afternoon!
