An archaeological desk based assessment and walkover survey were undertaken by Highand Archaeology Services in 2020 to inform work on the instillation of a new 33KV underground electric cable wire between Dores Road Sub-Station, Inverness and Moy Wind Farm. The DBA identified 38 previously recorded sites and nine areas of previous archaeological excavation work close to the route. These included the scheduled monument at Craggie Cottage (SM4712), three crossings of sections of General Wade military roads, and several farmsteads, clearance cairns and hut circles. The walkover survey recorded 42 separate sites close to the route, the majority of which had been noted in the desk based assessment. The sites included; 19 different walls or dykes, eight clearance cairns or groups of clearance cairns, the footings of eight structures and four quarries. In addition one hut circle, a burial monument and a kiln were also noted. Recommendations are made to adjust the route to avoid the scheduled area (SM4712) and to avoid most other sites through micro-siting and marking off. Were this is not possible additional recording is recommended. <1>
