EHG3839 - DBA and Walkover Survey - Inverie, Glenelg



West Coast Archaeological Services


Nov 2012


An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2012 on behalf of Knoydart Foundation in advance of two new native woodland planting schemes near Inverie on the central south coast of the Knoydart Peninsula. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected within the areas outlined for the proposed woodland planting scheme in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites identified. The desk-based assessment revealed one previously recorded site in the two survey areas, a sheepfold on the Allt a’ Mhuilinn in the Inverie survey area. The walkover survey recorded the remains of a three circular boulder structures, possible hut circle sites, within a possible prehistoric field system in the Inverie survey area. Several field boundary walls and a possible well were also recorded in Inverie and a possible Post Medieval structure was identified in the Glean an Dubh-Lochain survey area east of Inverie. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during planting for the woodland regeneration scheme. <1>
