Name:Walkover survey - Raffin, Lochiver, Sutherland
Organisation:Highland Archaeology Services Ltd
Date:Feb 2014

Description

A desk-based assessment, walk-over survey and Level 1 building survey were undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2014 at a site just to the East of Raffin, Sutherland in response to planning conditions on the development of a house on the site. This formed an accommodation camp for staff at a radar station nearby during the Second World War. An agricultural building had been erected on the eastern part of the site. As the physical remains of the camp are now disappearing and the site put to a new use, it was recommended that the site might be marked in some way to record its previous use. A watching brief was proposed on clearance for the septic tank and soakaway where pre-camp features were still visible. <1>
