Full Description

The North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NoSAS) undertook a desk-based assessment followed by a walk-over survey at the request of Aigas Community Forest Trust in 2015/16. The forest was bought in April 2015 from the Forestry Commission under the Forestry Land Scheme. The Forest Trust was required to undertake an archaeological survey of the forest as part of its scoping for a Forest Design Plan. A variety of features were identified, many of which relate to the early years of the forest in mid-19th century.
