Full Description

RCAHMS Canmore description:
NN 24820 55190 A watching brief was maintained on 12 March 2009 during the excavation of a narrow trench
across the 18th-century Tyndrum to Fort William military road at Kingshouse, where an underground cable was to replace an overhead 33kV power line. The road survived as 300mm of gravel with no trace of the underlying boulders and smaller stones usually associated with Wade and Caulfeild roads. It did, however, attain its intended 5m width although peat and vegetation had encroached over much of the road’s surface.
