An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey were carried out by AOC Archaeology Group in 2020 ahead of construction of a new access track northeast of Ash Cottage, Struy in Strath Glass, Invernessshire. The survey was required due to the location of the development site within an area containing post-medieval and prehistoric archaeological remains. Eight archaeological sites/features were recorded, all of which included previously unrecorded sites. With the exception of a drystone dyke and trackway of probable post-medieval date, the other sites and features relate to a temporary roadside occupation site used by workers during the construction of hydro-electric dams and associated infrastructure during the 20th century. The siting of the proposed track will directly impact some sites of minimal archaeological significance. <1>
