A detailed archaeological desk-based assessment and selected area walkover survey was carried out between the 8 and 17 November 2016 on behalf of Scottish Water Solutions in advance of a new water pipeline and associated works, between Invermoriston, Fort Augustus and Glendoebeg, Highland. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeological sites likely to be affected within the areas outlined for the proposed development works and pipeline route and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The desk-based assessment identified a significant number of archaeological sites in close proximity to the proposed works, while a number of new sites were recorded during the selected area walkover survey. The new sites included boundary dykes, clearance cairns, tracks, a stone-lined drain and surviving sections of General Wade’s Military Road. Mitigation measures are proposed to safeguard the sites during the establishment of the proposed works. <1>
