Fieldwork was conducted by Highland Archaeology Services in 2007 to follow up the results of a desk based assessment and mark off and monitor shielings identified by that exercise during the construction of a new water main on the island of Raasay. A walk-over survey of the line was undertaken to check for previously unrecorded sites; where appropriate, sites were then marked on the ground to make their locations clear to contractors, who were advised of the issues. A follow-up visit provided a further record. Unfortunately one site could no longer be found at this stage. The features concerned are all shielings near the eastern end of the water main, north of Loch na Meilich. No further fieldwork is proposed in this case. <1>
