Description

An archaeological watching brief at the site of a new run-of-river hydro scheme along the River Enrick at Corrimony, Glenurquhart. The watching brief requirement arose due to a number of archaeological sites being identified in a previous walkover survey. Ahead of development in October 2016, a concrete structure was evaluated in order to create a record of the site prior to development. Further sites recorded during a demarcation survey included a possible cairn and two shielings, all of which were fenced off for their protection. A watching brief was carried out intermittently between February to June 2017, where ground works for the associated hydro scheme structures, pipeline route and access tracks were monitored. A clearance cairn, a field boundary, a field drain and three pits of unknown age, which were impacted upon by the works, were excavated and recorded. No archaeological artefacts were recovered. <1>
