A Plan of ye barrack at Kiliwhiman [i.e. Kiliwhimen] : and of the ground within the bounds of it betwixt the two rivers; and the letters A.B.C [copy]
Bastide, John Henri (active 1718-1759)
Dumaresq, John (active 1709-1768)
This is a contemporary copy of another Bastide and Dumaresq map at shelfmark MS.1647.Z.03/08a, showing the land around Loch Ness in 1718, where the rivers Oich and Tarff enter it, and the proposed site for the new barracks fort of Kiliwhimen. It has topographical and hydrographical notes, and shows the site of the old Kiliwhimen Castle. Two other maps by Jelfe, at shelfmarks MS.1647.Z.03/08a and MS.1647.Z.03/08b, bear a strong resemblance to these two, and perhaps derive from them, or from the same survey, since Jelfe worked with Bastide and Dumaresq on the four new Highland forts of Kiliwhimen, Bernera, Ruthven and Inversnaid, which were built between 1718 and 1724.
