History of Culbokie

This project has been set up in 2014 by a small and informal group to gather together local historical information about the village and its surrounding area and to make it more available to the community. If you want to find out more or to join in with the group contact roger.piercy167@btinternet.com

The history of the community had been explored by Archaeology for Communities in the Highlands (ARCH) and the Black Isle Heritage Memories Project from December 2009 to May 2010. Details of the project and our involvement with it can be found here

UPDATE The Teanagairn Henge has now been cleared of Gorse by the team under the leadership of Andrew Newton and representatives of NOSAS. Andrew, as a leader of the Inverness Young Archaeologists Club (YAC) will encourage its involvement. The plan is to persuade Adopt- a- Monument to adopt the site and provide funds for improving access to the site and suitable signage. Photographs of the latest work can be found here.

We welcome any suggestions of improvements to the chapters we are creating as these have been compiled from research done through the internet, libraries, museums and conversations with residents and the memorabilia they have been prepared to share with us. The authors are well aware that they might well have missed significant sources of information and would be keen to talk to anyone who may be interested in helping rectify this. If any of the photographs that appear on this site cause offence then please let us know so that we can remove them. Care is taken to ensure that donors of photographs appreciate that we will make use of them in a way to further the aims of the project and this will include the use of Facebook.

The following diagram of Culbokie's history was constructed by members of the community:
