A controlled strip watching brief was carried out by Ross and Cromarty Archaeological Services in 2013 on behalf of Temporis Wind at the site of a proposed wind turbine on land 560m to the southeast of Yellow Wells, Foulis, Evanton. Clearance of the site access track and wind turbine site was conducted under close archaeological supervision using a mechanical excavator, fitted with a flat-bladed ditching bucket. Stripping of the northern-most section of the access track, which ran from the junction with a forestry track at the north end through a forested area, was not monitored by an archaeologist. This section was not included in the watching brief due to the previously disturbed nature of the ground from forestry operations. Fifteen archaeological features were recorded during the site clearance and twelve sites were recorded in the surrounding landscape. The sites and features relate to the post-medieval and prehistoric settlement at Strongarve and Black Hill. <1>
