EHG1101 - DBA and walkover survey - proposed Glen Ullinish Wind Farm, Skye



Ross & Cromarty Archaeological Services (RoCAS)


May 2012


An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by RoCAS in 2012 on behalf of Green Cat Renewables Ltd at Glen Ullinish, Skye in advance of a proposed wind farm development. The work was undertaken to establish the baseline extent and condition of any archaeological sites on the property, by recording and identifying any features that may need conservation management, and to inform forest design and operational planning. The survey identified 187 individual archaeological sites, including Post Medieval farmsteads, enclosures and boundary walls. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the proposed development works. <1> The report was used to inform an Environmental Statement submitted as part of a planning application. <2>
