Digitised copy of James Turnbull’s Survey of Tiree, titled ‘Plan of the Island of Tiree in Argyleshire the Property of His Grace The Duke of Argyll. Surveyed and Plan’d Anno 1768/9 by James Turnbull’. The map depicts the Tiree landscape before the modern crofting landscape was created in the nineteenth century, showing clusters of large farming townships separated by rigs of infield and outfield cultivation, common grazing, ‘old danish forts’ and other antiquities.

From the archives of the Dukes of Argyll at Inveraray Castle, made available through the Written in the Landscape project.
