Full Description

During a desk-based assessment exercise in advance of a proposed afforestation scheme at Glen Spean by the Centre for Archaeology in 1998 analysis of aerial photographs revealed a cluster of patches of cultivation rigs. The subsequent ground survey noted that these patches probably corresponded to areas of short grass cover within other areas of thicker bracken and bog myrtle cover. In one patch east of the track poorly defined cultivation rigs were detected. This evidence suggests that obscured cultivation rigs may survive more extensively across the west slopes of Cruaidh Bheinn. <1>
