A desk based assessment and walkover survey was conducted along the route of a proposed 33kV power line from Banavie to a new hydro-electric power station at Achnacarry. A wide corridor was surveyed to allow for a broad swathe of ground for machinery to work on. Three sites of possible archaeological significance were identified close to the route of the new power line. <1>
The line of the route as depicted on the HER map is approximate based on the grid references of the two end points. See the attached maps supplied with the report. <2>
