EHG5566 - DBA and walkover survey - Clashmore Mains Rehab project



West Coast Archaeological Services


Jan-Mar 2019


An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2019 on behalf of Scottish Water Solutions in advance of replacement of water mains and associated works, between Clashmore and Raffin, Sutherland, Highland. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeological sites likely to be affected within the areas outlined for the proposed development works and pipeline route and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The desk-based assessment identified a significant number of archaeological sites in close proximity to the proposed works, while a number of new sites were recorded during the walkover survey. The sites included boundary and enclosure dykes, clearance cairns, and structures of postmedieval date. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the establishment of the proposed works. <1>
