Name:Walkover survey - Allt Peitireach Hydro Scheme, Glenquoich Estate
Organisation:Jennifer G Robertson
Date:May-Sept 2010


A rapid walkover survey was undertaken by J.G. Robertson in 2010 on behalf of Hydroplan UK, in the Allt Peitireach valley, Glenquoich Estate, Glengarry, Lochaber, prior to the proposed construction of a hydro scheme. The survey area was situated on the North shore of Loch Quoich, to the East of the bridge over Glen Quoich. The scheme consisted of a pipeline running down the East bank of the Allt Coire Peitireach from Intake 2 to Powerhouse 2 below the Kinloch Hourn

road. The survey area comprised a narrow strip of land, 50m either side of the pipeline. It also included an area, 50m in diameter around the intake and 100m in diameter around the powerhouse. The desk-based research was followed by a rapid walkover survey of the area, which was undertaken on 21st May 2010 in dry sunny conditions, after a prolonged dry spell. Further walkover survey was undertaken in wet conditions on 19th September to accommodate changes in the design of the hydro schemes. Only two features were identified, one was a modern post and wire fenced enclosure and the other was a stone wall which formerly enclosed an area of woodland. <1>
