Description

An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out between the 13th and the 14th May 2011 on behalf of Miller Harris and Laga Estate, Ardnamurchan, Argyll in advance of a woodland creation and management scheme. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected within the area outlined for planting and regeneration and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The survey identified new sites of archaeological interest including a possible hut circle, a sheep fank, shielings, enclosures, boundary walls and areas of rig and furrow. Mitigation measures are proposed to safeguard the sites during the establishment of the woodland scheme. <1>
