Abstract:
Fountain Forestry commissioned Alder Archaeology Ltd to undertake an archaeological excavation and watching brief on the site a proposed access road at Balquhandy Forest, Dunning, Perth and Kinross. The Alder Archaeology site code for the project was DG05. This work followed on from a desk-based assessment and a walkover survey. The area of archaeological interest was part of a new forestry access route from the B934 into Balquhandy Forest which passes on the N side of the Scheduled Ancient Monument of Blaeberry Hill post-medieval deserted farmstead. The walkover took place 25th March 2011 and covered part of the line of the proposed access road from NGR NO 0246 1042 to NO 03275 10859 and NO 03495 10849. Significance finds were walls and enclosures on the N side of the SAM associated with the Blaeberry Hill deserted farmstead. Further work in the form of limited excavation was carried out during the period 17-18th May 2011 on a section of field boundary wall at NGR NO 02622 10458 which was to be destroyed by the road line. The northernmost 10m length of a field boundary wall was deturfed and a 1m wide section was cut through it. The wall comprised haphazardly laid field stone overlain with turf. No finds or samples were recovered. During the period 6-7 June 2011 a watching brief was undertaken on topsoiling from NGR NO 0246 1042 to NO 295 1042 as this area is in close proximity to the SAM. The watching brief revealed no sub-surface archaeology.
