Jacobs were commissioned by Scottish Water Solutions to carry out a desk-based assessment of the cultural heritage resource that may potentially have been affected by the replacement and upgrade of the sewer system running from Mellon Charles to Drumchork in Wester Ross (NGR: NG 840 926 to NG 874 885). The assessment found a total of forty-five sites of archaeological and historical interest along the proposed routes of the pipe line, mainly of post-medieval, military and modern date. The archaeological remains noted within the wider landscape and within the study corridor were all of Local, or Less than local importance. <1>
