I’m a big fan of old images and postcards and one of the best resources comes from the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS). It’s a mouth full, I know, but there is lots to be found as well. The site has several collections and the one I’m most fascinated of is the Canmore Database. The best explanation for the contents of the Canmore Database can be found on the website itself: “Canmore is a window to Scotland’s places, Canmore features photographs, maps, drawings and expert information on more than 280,000 places of interest, from abandoned settlements to the local high street, and ancient monuments to historic houses.” And since August 2009 the public is invited to add images and text to the database. To give you an example of what there is to find I have included a wonderful print showing Craighouse in the year 1817. There is a lot more from Jura to be found making it an excellent resource for historical information and a great resource to browse on that rainy Sunday afternoon. Enjoy!
