Description

A rapid archaeological condition survey was undertaken by Northlight Heritage in 2015 on General Wade's Military Road (Scheduled Monument No's. 6140, 6141, 6142 & 6143) as part of the Beauly to Denny 400 kV overhead line development programme specifically in relation to the dismantling of the existing 132kV overhead line. The survey focused on a scheduled stretch of the C18 military road which runs from a point some 3 km to the south of Fort Augustus to a meteorological station near to the summit of the Corrieyairack Pass, a distance of approximately 11.5km. The current condition of the road was recorded along with points of specific cultural heritage interest. Sections of the monument which had the potential to suffer from future erosion or damage were also noted. <1>
