EHG5747 - DBA and walkover survey - new house plot, Glen Drynoch, Skye



West Coast Archaeological Services


May 2022


An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2022 at Glen Drynoch on the Isle of Skye, in advance of the construction of a proposed new house, access track and associated infrastructure. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeological sites likely to be affected within the areas outlined for proposed development and to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The survey recorded 9 sites/features of archaeological interest including farmsteads, byres, enclosures, boundary dykes, and areas of rig and furrow cultivation. A total of 7 of the recorded sites/features will be impacted by the proposed developments at the site. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the proposed developments, while a programme of further archaeological input was recommended for the archaeological features that will be directly impacted by the proposed development project. <1>
