EHG4911 - Walkover Survey - 33kV Grudie Bridge to Kinlochewe Powerline



Scotia Archaeology Ltd


Feb 2016


This report describes the results of a walk-over survey of archaeological sites and monuments along part of the route of a proposed new 33kv power line between Grudie Bridge, at the head of Loch Luichart, and Taagan, at the head of Loch Maree, 2km north-west of Kinlochewe. The line will extend from approximately NH 3095 6237 westwards to approximately NH 0125 6401, an overall distance of some 17km. The report of the original survey (Lewis 2015) was undertaken between November 2014 and April 2015 and included descriptions of two areas where the new line will be carried overhead and two where it will travel underground. The section of overhead line examined in this report is situated toward the east end of Loch Chroisg where the route of the line was changed from that covered by the first survey. Originally, the east part of this section was to run along a quite steep slope some 250m north of the loch but subsequently it was decided to take it over more gently sloping ground near the bottom of the slope and close to the A832 road. <1>
