Activities

Field Visit (6 June 1995)

NG72NE 55 7930 2740

NG 780 300 (centre) In the springs of 1995 and 1996 a field survey was carried out on the NTS Balmacara Estate. The estate covers approximately 22.5 sqkm of the Lochalsh peninsula. It lies largely within the points of a triangle formed by Kyle in the SW, Plockton in the N and Balmacara in the SE. The range of topographic variation found within the estate largely reflects that found on the W coast of Scotland generally. The range of sites found during the survey reflects this topographic variation.

During two seasons of survey 109 new sites were recorded. A full report is lodged with the NMRS.

Field Visit (May 1995 - June 1995)

At the foot ofa large south facing rocky outcrop, about 100m to the north of the A87 and just a few metres to the north side of the road recorded as Site 11, is a boulder built structure. This circular 'pen' measures 8.0m in diameter over walls 2.0m thick. There is no obvious entrance.

This site is densely overgrown with bracken, and young birch trees are regenerating all over the clearing.
