EHG3636 - Desk-based assessment and walkover survey - Cnoc Achadh na h-Uaighe, East Langwell



Nick Lindsay


April 2011


An archaeological desk-based study and subsequent walk-over survey of an area to the north of Achnahuie, near East Langwell, Rogart in East Sutherland, was undertaken in April 2011. The survey was required by Mr Donnie Ross to establish the extent of archaeological remains, which would, in turn, determine the viability of planting trees. The survey area comprises an area of land approximately 19 hectares of gently to moderately sloping hill ground, immediately to the north of the dwelling of Achnahuie. It is situated approximately 15km to the north west of the East Sutherland coastal village of Golspie, and is accessed directly from the public road Achnahuie (see Appendix I). The survey resulted in the recording of 12 archaeological features, only three of which had previously been recorded on the Historic Environment Record (HER). <1> Please refer to the linked report for details of newly identified sites. <2>
