EHG3366 - Watching brief at Ballachulish Water Treatment Works (Phase 2A)

Technique(s)

Organisation

Jacobs Engineering UK Ltd

Date

August 2010

Description

An archaeological watching brief was carried out during groundbreaking works associated with the proposed upgrading of the Ballachulish Water Treatment Works NGR: NN 05124 60029 (centred). A desk based assessment of the proposed works previously undertaken by Jacobs assessed the archaeological potential of the area as good (moderate to high). This assessment, in conjunction with the proximity of the works to Rubha Mor Cairn, a Scheduled Monument (SM), gave rise to this stage of archaeological work. The works were carried out to record any archaeological remains revealed during the works. One feature of archaeological significance was discovered during the watching brief. <1>
