Archaeology Scotland are currently working with us to develop a series of workshops and events to explore and document archeological finds from along the burn.  As well as a public event, we have run sessions with pupils from Braeview Academy who documented features and graffiti along the Dighty and told stories about their family connections to the burn - they are collating this material as a leaflet and display.


We also have some dedicated volunteers who are involved in surveying sites along the burn.  David Drummond has written a fascinating article about the unique opportunities that arise when metal detecting and conservation meet.  See here for the full article (with kind permission from Treasure Hunting).


The Dighty Heritage Trail is described in a new booklet available from Broughty Ferry Library and Douglas Community Centre.  Additional historical details are gradually being added to this website.  Use the link below to  find out more.
