Back in early April Stephen and other staff from the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland led a previous day's survey work. A dozen or so people enjoyed a good day and learned a great deal, both about surveying and about the history of the area and of Nissen Huts in general.
The Haining is the field 'behind' the King's Knot with access from Royal Gardens or from the Knot enclosure.
Previous participants are welcome to return - but no experience is necessary.
It is essential to book in advance = contact Stephen Digney firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sensible clothing and footwear are advised - the area can be muddy and weather is always uncertain. There will be a break for lunch (own arrangements).
We understand that the walk around the King's Knot area, previously advertised for 12-noon, will not now take place.
