A watching brief was carried out by Ross and Cromarty Archaeological Services in 2014 on behalf of ALF Burn Hydro Ltd in advance of the installation of a 100kW hydro scheme at Auchmore Farm, near Muir of Ord, Ross-shire. The work was undertaken following an initial walkover survey (see EHG4209) during excavation of the pipe route through Site 5 and a nearby stone dyke (Site 18) to record their characteristics and to observe whether any buried archaeology was present. Both were constructed directly onto the ground surface, although using different construction techniques. Due to the much degraded nature of the stone and turf dyke, it is suggested that it was of an earlier period. However, no dateable material was recovered to support this interpretation. No other archaeological features or finds were observed. <1>
