Name:Walkover survey - Allt na Lairige, Loch Treig Hydro Scheme
Organisation:Highland Archaeology Services Ltd
Date:July 2014


An archaeological desk-based assessment and a walkover survey were undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2014 to inform plans for construction of a hydro-electric scheme on the Allt na Lairige, Loch Treig, Highland. The proposed intake, penstock route, powerhouse location and access tracks to be upgraded were walked. A corridor approximately 50m wide centred on the penstock line was checked and inspected but no significant cultural heritage features were expected to be directly affected by the scheme. <1>

The results of the survey were used to inform an environmental statement to support a planning application for the scheme. <2>
