Raitts Township Digital Model (Blender 3D)

Digital reconstruction of Easter Raitts, a post-medieval township near Kingussie, Badenoch, Scotland as it may have looked in the early-mid 1700s. For this project, I constructed a 3D model of the settlement for an Augmented Reality (AR) app. The positions of a range of simple structures, which are presumed to be mixed dwellings, byres, and enclosure walls (turf dykes), are matched to topographical survey drawings carried out by AOC (Scotland) Ltd in 1995 (HER Monument MHG4411). The data from this survey was used to reconstruct the township at the nearby Highland Folk Park in Newtonmore, and which in turn has inspired this visual interpretation. With grateful thanks to Eve Boyle of Historic Environment Scotland for her input and assistance. Commissioned Work.
