An archaeological survey was carried out by M Wildgoose in 1995 of the preserved remnant landscape lying beneath the mature pine forest to the south of Portree. This survey was commissioned by Forest Enterprise to highlight archaeological sites surviving within the forest, thereby indicating sensitive areas in future felling, and possible areas of interest for future tourist orientated developments. Eighteen new sites were located though it was considered probable that there remain a number of sites yet to be recorded. Small sites, such as shielings and twinning pens being especially difficult to see when covered with pine needles. <1>
