A DBA and walkover survey was carried out by C Dagg in 2002 in advance of a proposed hydro scheme southeast of Fort Augustus. Four main issues were identified during the assessment. Inundation of the proposed reservoir would result in the loss of an existing cairn and submergence of a late 19th century bothy structure associated with sport shooting. The preferred route for the power line and decision to route it underground have avoided potential impacts on various interests. The impact of the proposed power station on the designed landscape at St Benedict's Abbey was assessed as low. <1>
Following changes to the original proposal, including relocation of the power station and associated substation, modifications associated with access into the Garrogie Estate, widening of the Glendoe access track and other modifications, the data recovered from the DBA and walkover survey was re-assessed. It was concuded that there would not be any significant adverse impacts on the cultural heritage from the proposed changes. The findings were included in an addendum to the Environmental Statement, produced in 2005. <2>
