EHG3583 - Desk-based assessment and detailed survey, 7 North Duntulm, Trotternish, Isle of Skye



West Coast Archaeological Services


July 2011


An archaeological desk-based assessment and detailed archaeological survey was carried out on 26 July 2011, on behalf of Jock Gordon Design and Planning, at 7 North Duntulm on the Trotternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye in advance of the development of two new house sites. The work was undertaken to conduct a baseline survey of the upstanding archaeological remains within the application area in order to inform a strategy of mitigation to the proposed development. The fieldwork results have produced a detailed record of the archaeological structures within both proposed sites, which comprise mostly well-preserved Post Medieval settlement remains, representing multiple phases of occupation and building. <1>
