A desk-based archaeological assessment and a walkover survey of land adjacent to Tresdale, Canisbay, Caithness, in advance of a proposed wind farm development was carried out by Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) in 2012 on behalf of Aquatera Ltd. A total of nine sites within the boundary of the development area were identified. These dated from the Post-Medieval and Modern periods and were considered to be of either low or negligible heritage value. However, it was recommended that a watching brief should be conducted during the routeing of cables across the site. Should archaeology of particular note be found, it may be necessary to re-route the cables. <1>
The report was subsequently submitted as Appendix 11B in the project's Environmental Statement.
