Forestry Commission Scotland recently commissioned Skyscape Surveys to undertake the survey and visualisation of the Iron Age hillfort of Dun Deardail in Glen Nevis. We were very impressed by their professional approach to both flight planning and health and safety issues – and the resulting low altitude aerial photography and photogrammetric terrain model demonstrated both an attention to detail and a flair for innovative and aesthetic illustration. Discussing the site and our requirements both in advance of and subsequent to the fieldwork enabled Skyscape Surveys to identify the most productive methodologies, ensuring that their product best fit with our intended uses. We would not hesitate to recommend Skyscape Survey to anyone requiring a professional archaeological ‘eye in the sky’.
