An archaeological field survey was carried out by GUARD in early 1996 over an area of 6 sq kilometres within the Nairn valley, in advance of a proposed pig breeding centre. The area was academically recognised as part of a multi-period landscape, containing a large number and range of archaeological monuments. Approximately 40% of the survey area was found to be inaccessible due to a combination of impenetrable forestry and areas where tree fall had obscured the ground surface. Re-evaluation of previously known archaeological monuments within the survey area produced evidence for excellent preservation in spite of forestry. A considerable number of new sites were added to the database and an assessment of the archaeological potential of the area was made, as was a mitigation statement. <1>
