The Historic Land-use Assessment of Wester Ross : A Report by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland
The Historic Land-use Assessment (HLA) of the Wester Ross National Scenic Area (NSA) was carried out by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) with the support of Historic Scotland. The catalyst for this work was the decision by Scottish Natural Heritage to prepare a Management Strategy for the National Scenic Area (NSA) designation in Wester Ross. It was considered important that the human contribution to the shaping of the landscape should be adequately presented and accommodated in this exercise. Reflecting the approach in the draft NSA management strategy, however, the area covered by this study was more extensive than the NSA itself. Consequently, this report summarises the results of the HLA mapping of Wester Ross in its broader local context.
