EHG1136 - A832 Achnasheen to Kinlochewe Road Upgrade Phase 2



CFA Archaeology Ltd


Feb- March 2003


A programme of archaeological excavation and recording was carried out by CFA Archaeology Ltd (CFA) in advance of construction works associated with the A832 Achnasheen to Kinlochewe Phase 2 road upgrade, between Lubmore and Glen Docherty viewpoint, Highland (NGR: NH 064 594 - 101 585). The features investigated comprise former road alignments of the A832 road, an iron-working bloomery site, a former inn reused as a byre, a shieling and a small shelter or bothy. All probably relate to the medieval or later exploitation of the landscape, and provide an indication of the range of archaeological features that can be expected to survive in such marginal locations unsuitable for permanent settlement and farming (at least since the medieval period). The excavations dismissed two putative sites – a cairn and a structure – as being of entirely natural origin. <1>
