Topography at Dunans: Contour lines galore in this detailed examination of the landscape around the castle

GMGeomatics reported last week, and these are the results. I think you will agree that the detail here is astounding! I’ve included the legend to ensure you get all the detail. One thing I really like, is the movement from hot colours (high) to cool colours (low) – a nice intuitive visual touch.

The full pdf will be available on the Lairds and Ladies Archive.

Topographical Survey at Dunans: GMGeomatics completes a detailed scan of the grounds around the castle.

This weekend the final survey at Dunans was completed – an accurate survey of the ground around the castle is absolutely key when planning drainage, access and outbuildings. Gregor from GM Geomatics spent the day with multiple yellow tripods and lasers, and we should see the results shortly!


Note the tripod and tallest tree leaning slightly to the right – more about the cameraman than the surveyor!

This is the area surveyed:
