EHG5822 - DBA and walkover survey - proposed windfarm extension, Creag Rhiabhach



Highland Archaeology Services Ltd


Feb 2022


A baseline re-assessment was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2022, commissioned by Creag Riabhach Windfarm, in advance of the possible extension of the existing wind farm on the site. The reassessment included a site visit and update to desk-based assessment in order to evaluate the need for additional cultural heritage investigations as part of application for the installation of 3 additional turbines. The site visit was designed to identify and record visible archaeological remains in the vicinity of the proposed development. The survey and DBA update forms part of the predetermination works for the proposed Windfarm extension. The site visit identified and recorded the possible remains of a possible post-medieval or modern quarry, within the proposed development area which is deemed to be of low heritage value. No other heritage assets were noted within the assessment area. As no significant archaeological assets or features were discovered within the proposed development area or within its vicinity, it is recommended that no further archaeological works are required. <1>
