Full Description

NMRS Report: (21/11/2005)
NN58NE 10 5703 8865

An area of possible burning was recorded here during a detailed archaeological survey of Strathmashie Community Forest near Laggan, Highland. The survey was carried out to assess the evidence for past human use and to ascertain whether there was enough archaeology to develop a heritage trail in the forest. Small chunks of charcoal along with blackened soil are visible mixed in with natural subsoil. The area extends over approximately 1m x 0.5m and is located in the upcast from a forestry furrow that would have been ploughed in the 1960s. The burning may indicate sub-surface remains.
