EHG3647 - Desk-based assessment and walkover survey - Bank, Rogart



Nick Lindsay


Sept 2011


An archaeological desk-based study and subsequent walk-over survey of an area Bank, in Rogart, Sutherland, was undertaken in September 2011. The survey was required to establish the extent of archaeological remains, which would, in turn, determine the viability of planting trees in part of the area. The survey area comprises two separate areas of land totalling approximately 54 hectares (134 acres) of gently to steeply sloping valley side, mainly on the east side of a small tributary of the Garbh Allt, and gently undulating open moorland, all to the south and east of St Callans Church, in Rogart. It is situated approximately 1.5km to the north east of the East Sutherland village of Pittentrail, and is crossed by the C class public road from Pittentrail to Brora (see Appendix I). The survey resulted in the recording of 42 archaeological features, 19 of which had previously been recorded as 6 sites on the Highland Council Archaeology Unit’s Historic Environment Record (HER). <1> Note that the results of this survey have yet to be gone through in detail and added to the HER. Please see the survey report for the full results. <2>
