EHG5775 - DBA and walkover survey - proposed Corriemoille Wind Farm



Wessex Archaeology


Sept 2012


An archaeological walkover survey was undertaken by Wessex Archaeology in 2012, commissioned by RPS, at the Corriemoillie Wind Farm development area, near Garve, Ross-Shire. Of the three known cultural heritage assets within or closely abutting the development areas two were found to represent real features. Three shieling structures (WA 1000) and an enclosure were identified within the An Strathan flood plain in the south of the development area, whilst a bridge abutment/support was located within 1.5km of the north of the development area (WA 1001). A supposed earth bank (WA 1003) to the north of the development area represented a series of grooves that appear to be associated with deep plough in advance of planting the forest. A single undocumented site was uncovered: a modern shaft or marker placed on a natural outcrop within the Sail Odhar Bheag clearing. The cultural heritage features within the survey area mostly relate to the agricultural use of the land, particularly stock control and summer pasturing, probably dating to the post- medieval period and more recently. <1>
