Archaeology Notes

NH63SW 43 638 325.

( Centred: NH 638 325 ) Cairnfield of at least 30 cairns.

Information from A A Woodham to OS 9 August 1963.

This is an area prolific in natural outcrop rock and covered by dense bracken at the time of field investigation. No cairns were seen in this area. Occasional stone clearance mounds were noted.

Visited by OS (R D L) 28 August 1963.

As described by OS field surveyor (R D L) these mounds are almost certainly recent field clearance heaps.

Visited by OS (N K B) 27 Feburary 1970.


Field Visit (21 February 2012)

An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out at Easterton of Duntelchaig, Farr, Inverness-shire in advance of the erection of wind turbines and other future development. The work was undertaken to establish the baseline extent and condition of any archaeological sites on the property and to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected within the areas outlined for development.
