Our involvement with the Rock Art project began last year when a member of our local history society spotted the HES advertisement in Archaeology Scotland's news letter. Some of us had already caught the archaeology bug back in 2014 when a team from Glasgow university and GUARD came to our area to excavate a drovers inn so we were quite excited by the prospect of more archaeological opportunities with the added bonus of training from the Rock Art team. Our group is small but dedicated, meeting up once a week (weather permitting) to go roaming the hills and glens of Cowal and we have received much interest from all over the region. We hope to use the skills we have learned to look at other archaeological features when the Rock Art project is completed.
