An archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey were carried out by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2023 in advance of a water main renewal scheme located at Galantray, near Cawdor, Highland. 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 water main renewal project, especially where an open cut trench will be excavated for the new pipeline, and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The desk-based assessment and investigation of aerial imagery covering the areas, identified a number of archaeological sites in close proximity to the proposed works, while the walkover survey confirmed the presence of these sites and identified new sites. The recorded sites included stone dykes, a recumbent standing stone and cropmark showing a ring ditch enclosure. The archaeological features date to the post-medieval and prehistoric periods. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the development works. <1>
