Full Description

NH69SE 43 centred on 676 905

A series of substantial turf-and stone banks, thought to be plantation banks were recorded during a forestry survey by Headland Archaeology (NMRS MS 899/25, no.13) . The banks, which are depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherland 1879, sheet cxi) correspond with areas of woodland mapped by Burnett and Scott (1853) and which pre-date the more general period of tree-planting around 1870.

NH 66 90 (centre) A short-notice forestry survey was undertaken by Headland Archaeology Ltd over roughly 7.5sq km of land to the W of Spinningdale on the northern shore of the Dornoch Firth. A total of 28 features or groups of features of archaeological interest were recorded, 19 of which had previously been noted. The majority are post-medieval settlement sites (buildings, farmsteads and settlement sites) recorded first by the OS in 1874.
