Description

A watching brief was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group in 2008-9 during peat stripping associated with the construction of an access road, hard standings, a service trench, two wind turbine bases and allied structures at Beinn nan Oighrean, Easter Ross. Evidence of woodland dating from the Boreal period was found. Occasional large glacial erratics were encountered, hand-cleaned and inspected for rock art, but none was seen. No artefacts or features of archaeological significance were recorded. <1>
