Archaeology Notes

NN75NE 84 centred on 75 55

NN 75 55 (area) A walkover survey of the John Muir Trust East Schiehallion property, up to a height of 600m, was carried out between August 2002 and May 2003. This followed a survey in 1999-2001 (DES 2001, 75-6), which concentrated on areas that might be affected by the construction of a new path.

Further evidence for medieval or post-medieval settlements and field systems was found at a height of 360-70m, as well as more shieling huts or associated structures. All recognisable man-made structures were recorded, including sheep fanks and grouse-butts, but excluding 19th-century stone dykes, more recent drainage ditches and walkers' cairns.

A cairn on the E ridge, which might have been built by Maskelyne in 1774, has also been recorded (NN 72615 54599, 930m).
