A desk-based assessment and walkover survey were carried out by Headland Archaeology in 2021 in advance of a proposed wind farm development at Sròn Leathad Chleansaid, Lairg. The aim was to inform determination of an EIA report chapter in relation to likely significant impacts upon the historic environment. The assessment aims to identify all known heritage assets potentially affected by the proposed development, and the potential for currently unknown heritage assets to be present within the Inner Study Area. Site visits were undertaken on 9th March 2021 and 9th June 2021 in cloudy weather conditions. Known heritage assets were visited to confirm their location, extent and state of preservation and an extensive walkover was carried out focusing on the proposed turbine locations and access tracks. This walkover sought to identify any previously unrecorded heritage assets. Notes were made regarding site characteristics, any visible archaeology and geographical/geological features which may have a bearing on previous land use and archaeological survival, as well as those which may constrain subsequent archaeological investigation. A further visit to the study area was carried out on 10th June 2021 to investigate the baseline setting of designated heritage assets in the Outer Study Area. <1> <2>
