Baluachrach (Upper Town)

Tulloch Homes designated the site as The Meadows, Glascairn, but a Community Consultation elected to apply the name Baluacharch.

This site is under construction. A full photographic history is being compiled by CCT but a few early photographs will give a flavour of the site.

NH 60235 59076 An 8% trial trenching evaluation was undertaken, 13 April 2016, prior to construction of new community facilities in the centre of the village of Culbokie. The area was considered of interest as it lies within 500m of Culbokie Dun. A total of six trenches were opened and two relatively shallow stone and earth filled drains were identified. These attest to the sites use as low intensity agricultural land given over to grazing in modern times.
