18-century drovers inn uncovered in Scotland

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Archaeologists have been peeling back the past to reveal and 18-century drovers inn which was once central to local life until the area's community was decimated on the orders of the Sutherland Estate. 

For more than fifty years the building provided shelter to travellers and cattlemen bringing their herds to market until it was abandoned and fell into ruin when trade dried up.

However, a team of specialists from Guard archaeology who investigated the site, known  as the Wilkhouse, believe it was once an impressive structure and a "statement of modernity and affluence" of the people of the region.
