Images on this site from before March 2013 were taken by John and the late Rosie Wells and are CC-BY West Lothian Archaeology and by Jim Knowles Jim Knowles

To lessen risks, Jim and John, whenever possible, will now (from July 2013) work together flying only one kite at a time. Unless specified otherwise, images will be CC-BY West Lothian Archaeology but if taken on Historic Scotland properties images will need permission from HS for commercial use. The same caveat applies to images taken on properties which are administered by other heritage bodies (eg National Trust, NTS, English Heritage etc).
