Archaeology Notes

NM85SW 6 830 543

A field and an enclosure are depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Argyllshire 1875, sheet xlii). The field, two enclosures and what may be three unroofed shieling-huts lying to the NW (NM 8279 5439, M 8284 5444 and NM 8294 5436) are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1973).

Information from RCAHMS (SAH) 13 May 1998

NM 830 543 (centre) A desk-based assessment and rapid walkover survey were carried out in September 2001 over the proposed works and pipeline routes of two hydro-electric schemes. A range of post-medieval features were noted, as well as one settlement, abandoned in the mid-19th century, containing possible prehistoric features (previously recorded as shieling huts) at NM 830 543 (NMRS NM85SW 6).

Report will be lodged with Highland SMR.
