NM 4790 6890 (centred on) A desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out 16–20 June 2011 at Glen Drian, on the N tip of the Ardnamurchan peninsula, in advance of a bracken control programme. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology and to inform proposals for the programme. The survey recorded scheduled ancient monuments and previously unrecorded sites, and confirmed that the area contains sites of regional and national importance. The post-medieval settlement remains in the area, which are ruinous but mostly well preserved, are extensive and represent multiple phases of occupation and building.
