EHG716 - Desk-based assessment and walkover survey - Kingairloch Hydro Scheme



Catherine Dagg


July - Oct 2001


A desk-based assessment and walkover survey was carried out to evaluate areas potentially affected by a proposed hydro scheme. High bracken growth during the walkover survey made identification of features difficult. One multi-period settlement and 31 individual post-medieval features were noted. The potential effect of the final scheme was felt to be slight with only minor mitigation measures being necessary. <1><2>
