Battle Hill Huntly is the latest season in a 19 year programme of research and excavation to explore the archaeology of Aberdeenshire.

The project is open to anyone, and is a fun and relaxed way to explore Scotland’s amazing past!

We pick you up, take you to and from site and you have your own room with WiFi and TV. All food included though we share the cooking and cleaning!

All tools provided.

This year we will be exploring two previously unrecorded sites: an Iron Age hillfort and a massive 30m diameter and 2 high prehistoric burial cairn, along with lithic scatters.

Be amongst the first to discover the secrets of Battle Hill!
