Aquatera Ltd has commissioned the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) to provide a desk-based archaeological assessment of land adjacent Sandside Bay, Reay, Caithness, in advance of a proposed offshore wind farm development.
The desk-based assessment and walkover survey combined have identified a total of 61 sites within the onshore study area. The sites within the onshore site boundary include examples from the Neolithic through to Modern periods and range from High significance/importance to Negligible significance/importance. Their presence serves to demonstrate the rich archaeological landscape in which the onshore study area is situated and suggests that there is low to high potential for unknown archaeological sites to be present within the study area. <1>
The map is limited to 3000 records per layer so not all records are being displayed for this area. Zoom in to see more.
