A desk-based assessment was carried out by L-P Archaeology in 2020-21 in order to inform an environmental impact assessment for a proposed grid stability facility at Geiselittle near Thurso. The potential for significant remains of any period within the site was considered low. Trial trenches previously excavated at the south of the site (see EHG4010) revealed no features. The Tulloch of Shalmstry broch lies around a kilometre from the site, and there is evidence of other Prehistoric activity in the vicinity of the site. The previous improvement of the field would have removed any shallow Prehistoric features such as those identified in the trial trenches in the adjacent land to the sourtwest. It was considered that the development would have neglible impact on the setting of any nearby below ground heritage assets, including the Tulloch of Shalmstry, this landscape is already impacted by modern development and the existing hedges and proposed tree plantation would mitigate the impact to the setting. <1>
