Field Visit (10 February 2007 - 10 February 2007)

A boundary wall surrounding the policies of Scatwell House, kennels, trackway and quarry (NOSAS survey sites No 144, 166, 165 and 163 respectively) centred on NH 400 555.

Scatwell House was constructed in 1850 on the site of the township of Miltown of Scatwell. It is located amongst woodland on the S side of the river Conon with policies extending across the N facing slopes above and away to the S. The enclosed area is mostly birch wood and rhododendron, with some commercial woodland in the higher parts.

Further details of these and other associated sites can be found in the Strathconon Phase 1 Report (pages 49-51) produced by the North of Scotland Archaeology Society and appended to this record.

Field Visit (6 August 2012)

NH 3992 5618 to NH 3846 5494 A desk-based assessment and walkover survey were carried out in advance of the construction of a hydro-electric scheme for Scatwell Lodge. The construction work consisted of the renovation of Loch a’ Mhuilinn dam, construction of a powerhouse, construction of a pipeline beneath the existing vehicle track to the powerhouse and outfall, and a diversion to Allt nam Ballach. Although no new archaeological sites were recorded during the survey on 6 August 2012, two known sites were recorded: the Victorian Loch a’ Mhuilinn dam (NH 3992 5618) and the old kennels at Scatwell Lodge.
