Highland Archaeology Services Ltd, acting on behalf of Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) commissioned Peter Higgins to undertake an archaeological watching brief at Drumandarroch, near Scatwell, Ross-shire during construction of new access tracks for the replacement of the Beauly-Mossford Overhead Line. Known features lying close to the new access tracks were recorded, along with several new features. These included a small enclosure; nine heaps and scatters of stone cleared from fields; a circular depression of uncertain nature; and a turf bank. The watching brief effectively mitigated the impact of the new access tracks on the cultural heritage resource. <1>
The works are included in a report providing an overview of the whole Beualy-Mossford OHL project. <2>
