Archaeological Evaluation (2012)

NH 5050 4470 Beauly Converter Station (4004161) A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken at Balblair Wood, near Beauly on the site of a proposed converter station. The work focused on six features identified during a walkover survey. The features were broadly similar in appearance to other cairn and hut circle features seen in Balblair Wood. No direct dating evidence was recovered but the features are thought to reflect some form of prehistoric occupation of the site. No archaeological finds or features were recorded in trenches opened in the areas between and around the visible features.
