Today the whole group went to Slateheugh to survey the ruinous farmstead there. The northern wall stands almost to full height, with the outline of the rest of building clearly visible on the ground. The footings of at least two further ruined buildings are also visible.
Chris and Helen began recording the profile of the upstanding remains at a scale of 1:10, while Dave, George and Peter worked on offset drawings of the footings of the outbuildings, and Gemma taught Kirsty to record the breaks of slope using the GPS.
After battling the elements until mid-afternoon, we gave in at about 3pm and headed for home. We’ll continue tomorrow!
