Archaeology Notes

NN18SE 8.05 centred on NN 197 819

Fieldwork in two areas was required for the construction of a new water supply between Spean Bridge and Fort William (DES 2001, 50).

NN 197 819 (centre) High Bridge. A haul road constructed to bypass the township had cut through the bank and ditch on the S side of the Wade road and, 100m to the S, had cut through a turf dyke. The two sections across the bank and ditch on the S edge of the Wade road were recorded. These revealed the construction of the stone revetting of the bank. The section of turf dyke showed the possible remains of a stone boundary wall and make-up on the SE slope of what was considered to be a natural linear feature.
