A palaeoenvironmental assessment was carried out by Dr R McCulloch on behalf of CFA Archaeology at Farr Wind Farm, Farr, Inverness. Anaylsis of the sample suggested minimal, if any, disturbance or human acitivity prior to c. 2,300 BP. After this date there was an apparent expansion of human activity into the area by the effective management of the heath land to encourage herbaceous grown suitable for grazing. It is probable that the intensification of this process, either by accident or design, led to the destruction of the cohesive structure provided by the heather cover and the subsequent stripping away of the underlying peat by gullying. <1>
