My Heart’s in the Highlands: Dramatic Images of Archaeological Survey in Scotland

Archaeology can take you to some extremely dramatic locations. Rubicon’s recent survey work for Forestry Commission Scotland is a case in point, with our team getting the opportunity not only to visit some superb sites, but also to carry out their ‘daily grind’ against the backdrop of some of the most ruggedly beautiful landscapes to be found in the UK. We are also extremely lucky here at Rubicon that two of our surveyors, Enda O’Flaherty and Louise Baker, are also accomplished photographers. Some of the images he captured are breathtaking, and we just had to share them with you on the blog!
