A deskbased archaeological assessment of land adjacent to Slackbuie Avenue and West Heather Road, Inverness was undertaken by ORCA in 2018 prior to proposed development. The assessment identified a total of forty-one archaeological and historic sites within 1km of the proposed development. Of these, one site (Lower Slackbuie) was within the proposed working area. Lower Slackbuie is designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SM5218) The identified sites ranged across all periods, from prehistoric to the post-medieval. Due to modern development surrounding the site, only Site 1 (the SAM) will potentially be impacted by the development. The major mitigation measures proposed are physical demarcation of Site 1, and a controlled topsoil strip on the remainder of the site. A method of installing a cycle path is suggested. <1>
