A desk-based assessment and a rapid walkover survey were carried out by J.G. Robertson in 2013 in advance of a proposed hydro-electric scheme at Gleann Dubh Lighe, Fassfern Estate, Loch Eil. 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. Twenty-four archaeological sites were recorded. Most of these were associated with the agricultural landscape of either pre-clearance farmsteads or of the subsequent phase of sheep-farming, though a significant number resulted from the woodland management practices of the C18th and later.
