Welcome to the Ancient Scotland pages - a personal photographic view of some of the ancient sites of Scotland. The pictures date from 1994 through to the present. I like to think I'm a better photographer now than I was 20 years ago, so the quality can be a little variable; the better pictures will be those in the last few years on the New Stuff page!

Use the links at the top of the page to list all the ancient sites I have recorded, or to find sites on a clickable map of Scotland.

All photographs, text and map drawings on the Ancient Scotland website are copyright Martin McCarthy except where stated otherwise.

Many of my images are available to license through Getty Images or iStock. Where high-resolution images are available to buy, links are provided through to the relevant Getty Images or iStock page.

You can follow me on Twitter logoTwitter. You'll mostly just see notifications for when I update the website with new photos and locations.
