Full Description

Ruin of a small building to the west of Bardnaheigh, Caithness.

Unroofed building identified in LiDAR data gathered by AOC Archaeology in 2011 as part of the mitigation for the visual impact on the archaeological landscape associated with the proposed Baillie Hill windfarm, Caithness. <1>

The site of the building was close to one of the proposed turbines. Two trenches were excavated by AOC Archaeology in 2011 (trenches 8A and 8B) but no features were recorded. <2>

It must be assumed that the building had very shallow footings and had been completely removed between the gathering of the LiDAR data and the excavation of the evaluation trenches [IS-L 20/07/2020].
