EHG5702 - DBA and walkover survey - Fort William to Corran 33kV OHL refurbishment



Scotia Archaeology Ltd


July-Aug 2020


A walk-over survey was undertaken by Scotia Archaeology in 2020 along the route of the proposed refurbishment of two overhead power lines between Fort William and Corran, Highland District. The lines both run from a power distribution site on the east side of Fort William at NN 12210 74170 to two points near the Corran Ferry terminal. They run roughly parallel and close together until they reach Corran where Line 1 terminates at NN 02200 63470, just south of the ferry terminal while Line 2 finishes some 600m north of the ferry at NN 02350 64010. For some 7.5km of its length, from approximately NN 1082 7351 to NN 0951 6649, Line 2 is carried on a tower line along which no works are planned. Only a relatively small number of sites of archaeological significance lie on or near these two overhead power lines and, of that number, very few present any potential problem to the line refurbishment. Many have been redeveloped as modern dwellings, some are situated considerable distances from the line while others were not located or proved to be not archaeological features. <1>
