Organisation

Date

June 2017

Description

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2017 to fulfil a planning condition on the erection of a telecommunication mast and associated access track on Balnacoil Hill, near Brora, Sutherland. Micro-siting of the track was recommended which enabled features identified in a previous walkover survey (see EHG) to be avoided, and no archaeological deposits were found <1>
