Name:DBA and (limited) walkover survey - Proposed Limekiln Windfarm, Caithness
Organisation:Headland Archaeology Ltd
Date:Jan 2012


A DBA and targeted walkover survey of the Inner Study Area of the proposed Limekiln Windfarm, Reay, was carried out to inform the Cultural Heritage chapter of an Environmental Statement by Headland Archaeology in 2012. Due to the density of plantation forestry within the study area the walkover was targeted on known cultural heritage assets and areas that were clear of forestry. It was considered that a walkover through plantation forestry would not be informative at this stage due to the highly restricted visibility within the woods. The intention of this walkover was to assess the presence/absence, character, extent and condition of known assets and to identify any previously unrecorded assets. In addition The area surrounding the Inner Study Area was driven around and visits made to cultural heritage assets in order to establish the potential for impacts upon their setting and to gather data to allow impacts to be assessed. <1>
