A walkover survey was undertaken by J G Robertson in May 2010 on behalf of Hydroplan UK, at Wester Allt Beithe and Easter Allt Beithe, Glenquoich Estate, Glengarry, Lochaber, Highland, prior to the proposed construction of two hydro schemes. The survey was undertaken on 6th May 2010 in dry sunny conditions, after a prolonged dry spell. Further walkover survey was undertaken in wet conditions on 19th September to accommodate changes in the design of the hydro schemes. The survey area was situated to the North of Loch Quoich, at the north end of the Glen Quoich inlet. The survey areas comprised a narrow strip of land, 50m either side of the pipelines. It also included an area, 50m in diameter around the intakes and 100m in diameter around the powerhouse options. A total of 18 archaeological sites were recorded, mostly associated with the agricultural landscape of Glenquoich. <1>
