An archaeological desk based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2019 on behalf of Trees for Life and Balavil Estate in advance of a woodland creation and restoration project on the Balavil Estate, Kingussie. The walkover survey recorded a rich and diverse archaeological landscape with a significant number of new sites recorded including a prehistoric field system with stone clearance cairns, a standing stone, and a cup-marked stone. However, it was the post-medieval settlement that dominated the landscape including three major areas of settlement and their associated infrastructure, field systems and clearance cairns, some outlying structures including bothies, and shooting butts relating to estate activities. <1>
