Description

A desk-based assessment was undertaken by CFAchaeology in 2019 in order to assess the potential impact on cultural heritage interests of the construction of three bothies on the Killiehuntly Estate in the Cairngorms National Park. The objectives of the cultural heritage study were to: identify the cultural heritage baseline at and in the vicinity of the proposed bothy locations; assess the proposed bothy sites in terms of their archaeological potential; consider the potential effects of construction of the proposed bothies on the baseline cultural heritage resource, in the context of relevant legislation and planning policy guidelines; propose measures, where appropriate, to mitigate any predicted adverse effects. Potential archaeological constraints have been identified at one of the proposed bothy locations: Bothy 2 (at NN 79485 98315) near the shore of Lochan nan Reamh. This bothy site has been the subject of recent field survey and the visible remains present have been well recorded. The two other bothy sites (Bothy 1 at NN 78830 98492 and Bothy 3 at NN 79843 92175) have not been subject to recent survey but the evidence from the desk-based assessment suggests that the probability of appreciable constraints being present at either location is low. <1>
