A desk-based assessment and walkover survey ahead of a proposed hydro-electric scheme at Uileann on the Ardtornish Estate, Morvern, was conducted by J.G. Robertson in 2010. The survey area consisted of a narrow strip of ground, 50m either side of the proposed pipelines, an area 50m in diameter around the intakes and 100m in diameter around the powerhouse. Twelve archaeological sites, comprising twenty-four individual monuments recorded. All were associated with the agricultural landscape of either the pre-clearance townships or with the subsequent phase of sheep-farming. <1>
The environmental statement suggested that the dyke, enclosed arable land and the sheepfank were to be avoided to protect them from any impact from the hydroelectric scheme. <2>
