The assessment carried out between January and March 2005 identified a total of 48 sites close to and in the study corridor. The most common sites noted along the study corridor were cropmark sites along the floodplain area beside the River Nairn, while numerous farmstead sites known from the 1st Edition OS map were noted along the upland sections of the pipeline.
