A Level 1 Historic Building Survey and Archaeological Watching Brief were undertaken on behalf of Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering Ltd. at the site of a new electrical substation being constructed near Mybster, Caithness. The work was conducted by Northlight Heritage between 6th September and 23rd October 2015. Desk-based assessment and standing building survey of a ruined rectangular structure located in the south-western part of the new substation showed it to be the remains of a short lived croft building. It appeared to have been constructed in the late nineteenth/very early twentieth century and was out of use by the mid twentieth century. Varying levels of topsoil and peat were noted across the new substation area although no further archaeological remains were shown to be present. <1>
