Name:DBA and walkover survey - proposed Glenkirk Windfarm
Organisation:Headland Archaeology Ltd
Date:Sept-Dec 2004

Description

A desk-based assessment and walkover survey were undertaken by Headland Archaeology in 2004 to provide data for a cultural heritage chapter in an Environmental Statement for the propsed Glenkirk Windfarm near Tomatin. An initial walkover of the search area was undertaken over the period 15-22 September 2004; a second walkover survey was undertaken over the period 14-15 December 2004 to assess specific changes to the earlier plan. A large part of the area covered by the proposal contained substantial peat deposits, with vegetation being largely rough moor and heather, with the ground being relatively undulating and uneven throughout. The walkover survey covered a series of 100m wide areas and corridors, centred on the proposed locations of turbines and other elements of the scheme likely to cause ground disturbance, including access tracks, site compounds and crane bases. Three new sites were located during the walkover survey, a possible cairn, a relatively modern marker cairn and an upright stone. <1>
