Highland Archaeology Services Ltd, acting on behalf of Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), commissioned Archaeology North Ltd to undertake an archaeological watching brief at Comrie in 2013-14 during works related to the Beauly-Mossford OHL replacement project in the area of Towers 46-50. Three phases of work were undertaken; a watching brief during the excavation of a cable trench near Comrie farm; a watching brief during construction of a new access track; and a remedial excavation following damage to a building identified during the original walkover survey. Several archaeological features have previously been recorded within the area of the watching brief, but no significant archaeological deposits or features were found. An earth cable was however accidentally routed through the site of a building. Part of the cable trench was therefore reopened and a section recorded through this feature. <1>
The works are included in a report providing an overview of the whole Beualy-Mossford OHL project. <2>
