Description

An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2012 on behalf of Scottish Woodlands in advance of a woodland creation scheme at Amer, Glen Bracadale, Skye. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected within the areas outlined for planting and regeneration and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The area of the walkover survey was approximately 500 hectares. The survey identified 84 new archaeological sites including prehistoric hut circles and boulder walls, and later settlement remains including townships, farmsteads, pens, shielings and a complex of turf and stone dykes. Twenty-nine areas of relict rig and furrow cultivation have also been recorded, which complements the settlement remains. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the establishment of the woodland scheme. <1>
