Record details

External Ref:BMH13
Name:Walkover survey - Beinn Mhor, Tomich
Organisation:Highland Archaeology Services Ltd
Date:April 2013

Description

A walkover survey was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2013 to inform plans for the development of a wind farm and associated access at Beinn Mhor, Tomich, Highland. Six features were identified and recorded during the survey, although only two of these should be affected by the development. These included a possible shieling hut and a large stone built monumental cross. The cross stands at the highest point of the site and is designed to have a significant visual domination of the landscape. It is visible from all parts of the site and although not directly affected by construction work there will be an impact on the setting of this monument which will need to be assessed. The walkover survey covered the proposed turbine site itself. The lower access tracks require a further visit. <1>

The lower access tracks were subject to walkover survey in June 2013 - see EHG4397.
