A walkover survey was carried out by Headland Archaeology in 2001 over six small areas around Loch More and to the north of Loch Stack on the Lairg-Laxford Bridge road in advance of a proposed Wooodland Grant Scheme. The survey areas included a high proportion of existing plantations. The survey of most of these plantations was extremely difficult as the trees were so dense that it was very hard to transverse the woodlands in a systematic manner. The transverses therefore followed the passable tracks through the woods. The more open areas within the plantations were often found to be very wet. Eleven features or group of features of archaeological interest were recorded, with all but one site recorded during the survey likely to date to the post-medieval period and relating to pastoral and agricultural land-use dating to the 18th and 19th centuries. <1>
