External Ref:AN40
Name:Watching brief and trial trench - Land 100m North East of Stoer Cemetery, Lochinver
Organisation:Archaeology North Ltd
Date:July 2013


A watching brief was carried out by Archaeology North in 2013 on the site of a proposed development on land northeast of Stoer cemetery, Lochinver. The initial phase of development was restricted to forming a new access splay onto the road to the north of the site, and a trial trench was excvavated across one of the enclosures identified on the the site. A detailed walkover survey was also made of the whole site, including examination of upcast from the many rabbit burrows and from service runs associated with the caravan(s) known to have been on the site in recent years. Only evidence of agricultural activity in the late C19 to C20 was found. In view of the lack of significant archaeological remains it was recommended that no further observations would be necessary on this development. Further development works were postponed. <1>
