Crannogs: A Diminishing Resource?


Full title: Report on a survey of crannogs in the south west of Scotland (and excavations at Buiston) ..contains a complete list of known crannogs in D&G, submerged and above water. As of October 2016 many therein to be added to the TMA database...some shewn on OS Explorers not Pathfinders. An example is Whitefield Loch near Glenluce, where one is shown on OS Pathfinder 82 (NB correct name is Dorman's Island, Whitefield Loch) whilst Explorer 310 reveals more (two, albeit one submerged unless extreme drought)

The Glebe Blog


A blog by a walker who has stomped all over Dumfries and Galloway in all sesons solo and with other ramblers. Many sites visited despite these being in a by the by context. Many photos, highly 'visually informative' despite the frequent presence of lines of walkers therein. Good as a reference for routes and permitted access too. Site dormant since May 2015 following his involvement with an online admirer..hope all ok there. For practical purposes Google Glebe Blog and then destination or location you're interested in. MoG, Torhouskie, Cambret, you name it, he's probably been. I've found this site invaluable and therefore recommend it highly.

Crammag Head (Stone Fort / Dun) — Fieldnotes

A return a year after my first visit, and I found that the replacement of the power line and the poles that carry it has caused fresh damage to the cliff to cliff earthwork that encloses the dun, which is believed may be an earlier structure. See photo. When the light was replaced a few years ago there was a watching brief on the work. Sadly, times seem to have changed.. spencer Posted by spencer

Tree Island, Whitefield Loch (Crannog) — Fieldnotes

This site is no longer an island due to a fall in the level of the loch. It is unmarked on OS 82, but delineated by a cairn symbol on Explorer 310 on account of the spread of stone atop it. Access is from the fisherman's car park at NX 235 549, from whence paths radiate, then beating your way through the brush. Canmore ID 62149 spencer Posted by spencer
