Every year, in the autumn, Highland Archaeology hosts a festival to showcase the magnificent history of the area. Community heritage groups often arrange local walks as part of these celebrations, and Rogart’s is no exception.
This year Alex Campbell, Eiden, is giving a guided walk around Reidh Chalmai (sometimes referred to as Rhichalmy of Torboll) where the landscape is littered with interesting archaeology and fascinating history.
In 1909 archaeologist Alexander Curle described the tumuli, chambered cairn and hut circles at Reidh Chalmai at great length in his diary and sketched one of the more intact cairns at neighbouring Torboll. Maps reveal significant signs of former habitation and there is plenty of evidence to be seen today.
It should prove a fascinating morning.
Please meet at 10:30, Pittentrail Hall car park. The walk will last about 2 hours. Afterwards, tea and coffee will be available in the hall.
