A DBA and walkover survey were carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2014 on behalf of Bidwells and Glenshero Estate, Laggan in advance of a proposed new road scheme. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeological sites and features likely to be affected by the new road access and to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites located. The survey identified and recorded four new archaeological sites including a shieling group, circular stone/boulder settings, and a stone-built enclosure; while other known sites including a stone and turf enclosure, and two of Wade’s Bridges were also visited. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the establishment of the new road scheme. <1>
