An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey were carried out by RoCAS in 2014 on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland at Creag Nan Eun Forest Block, South Loch Ness, Inverness-shire in advance of proposed tree felling along the A82 trunk road. The work was undertaken to establish the baseline extent and condition of any archaeological sites on the property, by recording and identifying any features that may need conservation management, and to inform forest design and operational planning. Archaeological sites were recorded individually including using high-resolution digital photography where possible, while sketch survey drawings were produced where necessary. The individual site locations were plotted using and ArcPad GIS software on a handheld Windows Mobile-based computer capable of sub-metre accuracy. When a reliable satellite signal was unavailable, site locations were recorded using a handheld Garmin GPS. The survey identified forty-nine archaeological sites, including post medieval settlement, boundary walls and clearance cairns. <1>
