A reconnaissance survey took place in selected areas within the parishes of Ardnamurchan, Ardgour and Morvern, forming the first stage of a programme of postgraduate research to investigate the presence of Scandinavian settlement in Northern Argyll. The aim was to locate archaeological remains that could date from to the medieval period and to generate discussion of this evidence. The locations selected for systematic survey were those with very little known archaeology, as well as a selection of potentially significant sites identified from Canmore. The work was funded by the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland and the Caledonian Research Foundation. A series of structural remains were identified at various locations. <1> <2>
