Technique(s)

DESK BASED ASSESSMENT, WALKOVER SURVEY

Organisation

Wordsworth Archaeological Services

Date

30 October 1997

Description

To gain access to conifers in Millburn Plantation, Ru Arisaig Forest, Scottish Woodlands Ltd needed to construct an access route past abandoned structures. Highland Council Archaeology Service requested that the route should be examined by an approved archaeologist to record the nature of the surviving remains and to minimise the impact of the forestry operations on these archaeological remains. A brief desk-bound survey was carried out examining existing records in the Archaeology Service's Sites & Monuments Record and early OS maps of the area. A site survey was carried out on the 30th October in dry conditions. Attention was particularly concetrated in the area of the new access road which had already been constructed by the time of this visit. <1>
