Description

Highland Archaeology Services Ltd, acting on behalf of Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) commissioned P Higgins of Archaeology North Ltd to undertake archaeological watching briefs in 2013-14 during works related to the Beauly-Mossford OHL replacement project covering works around various tower bases (33-38, 66-74 and 84-85). Several tower bases lay within the agreed watching brief area but were accessed either by existing tracks or by temporary tracks of plastic panels laid on the ground surface. In these cases the watching brief was limited to the excavations necessary to construct the towers; in addition several tower required considerable ground levelling, and this was also observed. With the exception of Towers 84 and 85, no archaeological features were found. <1>
