A desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2012 on behalf of Scottish Water Solutions in advance of a proposed new water main between Newlands and Wester Abercalder to the south of Dores, Inverness-shire. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected along the line of the route in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The walkover survey identified several new archaeological sites including four bridges, an enclosure, turf and stone-built structures, boundary dykes and a track. Post-medieval settlement remains relating to some of these sites were identified and recorded during the survey. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the excavation of the pipeline trench. <1>
