NC 575 050 A topographic survey of the scheduled area

and a 100m buffer zone around the The Ord was carried

out 22 February–18 March 2010. The area contains a high

density of archaeological monuments, including Neolithic

funerary monuments and remains of Bronze Age settlements

and agriculture. Although the distribution of the major

features was known, this survey added detail and increased

the accuracy of information obtained in previous surveys.

The survey also identified several previously unrecorded

features. In total over 450 individual archaeological features

were recorded including a burnt mound, c35 hut circles, 14

rectangular buildings and over 300 clearance cairns.
