A pre-felling archaeological walkover survey was undertaken on the site of the future Halsary Windfarm, Mybster, Caithness on behalf of ScottishPower Renewables. The work was conducted by Northlight Heritage between 28th and 29th of September 2016 and focussed on the identification of a scheduled standing stone and a possible shieling hut that were not identified during the previous Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). The two standing stones comprising Scheduled Monument 5301, Halsary, standing stones 450 m WNW of and 620 m NW of, were located and accurate co-ordinates taken. The possible shieling hut identified on the first edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch to the mile map, surveyed in 1871 and published in 1877, was not located and it is likely no surface traces of this feature now survive. <1>
