EHG80 - Walkover Survey - Glenfeshie
Wordsworth Archaeological Services
An archaeological survey of proposed Native Pine wood plantations and exclosures on Glenfeshie Estate on behalf of the Wills Woodland Trust. The Regional Archaeologist had identified this as an area of likely archaeological interest and recommended that a rapid walkover survey be carried out. The purpose of this survey was to identify the presence or absence of archaeological sites and to comment on the human influences on the landscape in this area. It was not intended to be a definitive mapping of all archaeological features in this area. An initial historical and cartographic study was carried out in Inverness Library to identify something on the past history of this area. This was followed by a rapid field examination that totalled 2 days. This was carried out in cold and wet conditions. Brief descriptions were taken of all the sites examined. Photographs were also taken to help locate the sites through the prevailing weather. <1> Included in an Environmental Impact Assessment. <2>
