EHG175 - Walkover Survey - Langwell-Rinsary Braes, Berriedale



Headland Archaeology Ltd


03 March 1999


The Langwell - Rinsary Braes WGS application area covers 76 ha of land extending for 2 km along the Berriedale Water close to the coast at Berriedale, Caithness. This area comprises a narrow valley floor with fluvial terraces and steep slopes on either side rising up to an open plateau at 350 ft. Field survey was restricted to areas not obscured by dense tree cover and therefore did not cover much of the steeper valley sides. The accessible areas were systematically walked by a team of two archaeologists and all features of archaeological interest were identified and described. The features were located where necessary, using a Total Station EDM. <1>
