Date

Description

A desk-based assessment and walkover survey were undertaken by SUAT in June 2004 of a proposed windfarm development at Scoolary, near Gills, Caithness. In the DBA various sites were noted including two possible broch sites, shielings, sheepfolds, rig and furrow, wells, former quarries and post-medieval farmsteads. A walkover survey recorded three additional sites: a field boundary of upright Caithness slabs set on end, recorded on the 1st edition OS map; a drystone field boundary with undulating courses revealing the site of rig and furrow, no longer visible on the ground; and another former quarry, probably for a modern access track. <1>
