A desk-based assessment and archaeological measured survey of a post-medieval drovers’ enclosure (MHG18906) located immediately to the south of the electricity substation at Achkeepster, near Mybster, Caithness.
The measured survey was undertaken on 24th May 2017 as part of a programme of mitigation ahead of development for a grid connection to Bad a' Cheo Wind Farm. The site comprised a subrectangular bank, forming a large enclosure situated within an area of dense vegetation, which made archaeological visibility difficult. <1>
