Description

NG 5721 4010 to NG 5594 3968 Following the results of a desk-based assessment, a group of shielings and a boundary dyke were identified to the eastern end of the water main, N of Loch na Meilich. Two follow-up visits to the area were made, on 9–18 May 2007, the first consisting of a walkover survey checking for upstanding archaeological remains and flagging known RCAHMS sites for the attention of the contractors on site. During the second site visit the sites were surveyed using a DGPS unit in mapping mode, photographed and recorded. The construction work was closely monitored. One new shieling hut was recorded, previously not noted in RCAHMS or SMR record, at the foot of the W flank of Meall Daimh. Archive deposited with RCAHMS. Funder: Halcrow PLC. <1>
