This page sets out what we know about the history of the woods and the surrounding area. Please get in touch if you have more information to share.
Very close to the woods a valuable collection of historic artefacts was found, dating back to the beginning of the Bronze Age around 2280-2020 BC. You can find more information here.
Much more recently the Culduthel House was built around 1780-90 as a Georgian building of two storeys and attic. The house was purchased by Inverness Town Council in 1914 and a hospital at the site opened in 1917. The hospital closed in 1989.
