Description

Archaeology North Ltd was commissioned to undertake a deskbased assessment and walkover survey in advance of a woodland planting scheme. Several important archaeological sites were noted in the vicinity but no significant archaeological deposits or features were found in the proposed planting areas. The impact of the planting scheme on the setting of neighbouring brochs was considered, and a possible adverse impact noted when trees mature in one planting area. Mitigation by a long term management plan was proposed. <1>
