Watching Brief (30 March 2011)

NM 92925 36633 A monitored topsoil strip was undertaken on 30 March 2011 prior to the construction of a power house, access track and pipeline route associated with a small hydro-electric scheme. The site was considered sensitive as it is located in the vicinity of a number of known sites, including a buried prehistoric landscape at Moss of Achnacree, a scheduled chambered cairn (NM93NW 4), a burial ground and a possible shieling. There were no finds or features of archaeological significance.
