Baluachrach (Upper Town)
Tulloch Homes designated the site as The Meadows, Glascairn, but a Community Consultation elected to apply the name Baluachrach.
Whilst this site is under construction an attempt is being made to capture images on a weekly basis. They will be displayed in monthly batches starting with a few images showing the site before development. The index to the pages will be in the form of a gallery at the foot of the page. Clicking on an image will access those images.

NH 60235 59076 An 8% trial trenching evaluation was undertaken, 13 April 2016, prior to construction of new community facilities in the centre of the village of Culbokie. The area was considered of interest as it lies within 500m of Culbokie Dun. A total of six trenches were opened and two relatively shallow stone and earth filled drains were identified. These attest to the sites use as low intensity agricultural land given over to grazing in modern times.
