Archaeology Notes

NN58NE 25 5766 8875 to 5769 8876

The remains of a turf-covered dyke were recorded here during a detailed archaeological survey of Strathmashie Community Forest near Laggan, Highland. The survey was carried out to assess the evidence for past human use and to ascertain whether there was enough archaeology to develop a heritage trail in the forest. Up to 6 course (1m) of the wall have survived in places, but other sections are now littler more than turf-covered banks.
