Description

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Headland Archaeology in 2006 on the groundworks associated with the site of the Millennium Windfarm, Glenmoriston. The work was commissioned by Millennium Wind Energy Ltd (MWEL) and followed a specification by the Highland Council Planning and Development Service (Archaeology Unit). Where deviations from, and widening to an existing track occurred, this was excavated using a mechanical excavator under archaeological supervision, along with an area for the control building. During this excavation a borrow pit, probably relating to the existing track was uncovered, but no other archaeological features or structures were found. However, outside of the proposed development area a small stone built structure was discovered. This was drawn and noted on the site plan. <1>
