Description

This report details the results of an archaeological walkover survey of the proposed access and pipeline routes and associated development areas for Badachro Hydro Scheme, located between Loch Braigh Horrasdail and the Badachro River near Gairloch in Wester Ross, which was undertaken in January 2015. Although areas of the landscape surrounding the scheme had been previously surveyed, the proposed development area appears not to have been thoroughly covered. Eleven new archaeological sites were recorded, including one hut circle and numerous shielings. Mitigation measures have been recommended to ensure these sites are not compromised during development. <1>
