Name:DBA and walkover survey - Culbin Farm, Evanton
Organisation:Ross & Cromarty Archaeological Services (RoCAS)
Date:Nov 2013

Description

A DBA and walkover survey was carried out in November 2013 by RoCAS on behalf of Temporis Wind Ltd in advance of the installation of one 500kW wind turbine at Culbin Farm, near Foulis, Dingwall. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be directly affected within the proposed development area for the wind turbine and access road. Five archaeological sites, which were unlikely to be directly impacted by the development, were recorded. The DBA identified a substantial number of post-medieval and prehistoric monuments and settlement sites, including scheduled monuments, in the surrounding landscape. A study of these sites, conducted in order to assess the indirect impacts on the cultural heritage in the landscape, concluded that one site, Castle Craig, located east of the proposed development, would be visually impacted by construction of the new turbine. <1>
