A desk-based assessment and walkover survey were carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2022 on behalf of Scottish Water in advance of replacement of water mains and associated works, centred on Dunvegan and Roskhill, on Skye. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeological sites likely to be affected within the areas outlined for the proposed development works and pipeline route and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The desk-based assessment and in particular the investigation of aerial imagery covering the areas, identified archaeological sites in close proximity to the proposed works, while a number of new sites were recorded during the walkover survey. The sites included field and enclosure dykes, clearance cairns, a sheepfold, and structures of post-medieval date, forming a part of the croft settlements and townships of Vatten, Roag, Ardroag, Bolvean and Greep. Mitigation measures have been proposed to safeguard the sites during the development works. <1>
