We've had a fantastic day out on the head this morning with our volunteers and National Trust for Scotland archaeologist Daniel Rhodes. We were mainly investigating the mystery building at the end of Nunnery point (see picture with kite). Using a special kite and camera kit we took some aerial photos of the site, and also mapped the outline of the building using a laser range finder. It was a very fun and interesting day so we're looking forwards to our next archaeology session in a couple of weeks' time.  Lizy
