Archaeology Notes

NM48SE 39 centred on NM 4835 8380

NM 4835 8380 (centre) A desk-based assessment and rapid walkover survey were carried out over the area of the construction compound associated with the pier development. This was followed by the trial trenching of a 5% sample to check for buried archaeology. No visible archaeology was recorded. A diffuse scatter of lithics was recorded (during trial trenching) associated with a post-glacial raised beach in the N corner of the site. There were no features associated with the lithics.

A base-line survey of a wreck in Galmisdale Bay, recorded the previous year during an unusually low tide, was also carried out [NM48SE 8005].

Reports deposited in Highland SMR and the NMRS.
