Name:DBA and Walkover Survey - Glen Convinth Woodland Creation Scheme
Organisation:Ross & Cromarty Archaeological Services (RoCAS)
Date:May 2013

Description

An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by Ross and Cromarty Archaeological Services in 2013 on behalf of CKD Galbraith in advance of a new woodland creation scheme at Glen Convinth, Inverness-shire. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeological sites and features likely to be affected within the area outlined for the proposed woodland creation scheme and to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites identified. The survey identified three previously unrecorded sites: a stone-built bothy revetted into a hillside, a hut circle or enclosure and a shieling. The survey also accurately recorded known sites recorded during a previous survey in 1997 (see EHG237). Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the woodland planting. <1>
