Abstract:
Several phases of work were undertaken at the site of the Kilbraur wind farm. This work was commissioned by Kilbraur wind energy Ltd. The fieldwork comprised; (i) an archaeological evaluation on the site of the borrow pit, (ii) an area excavation on the site of the on site borrow pit, (iii) a field survey of the adjacent prehistoric remains, (iv) an evaluation of a rectilinear stony mound in the SW of the borrow pit and (v) a watching brief over all ground works. The area excavation was undertaken on the proposed on site borrow pit following an evaluation that had identified the remains of two stone cairns. During the excavation a further round cairn and curvilinear stone heap were identified. At the same time as the area excavation a survey was undertaken on sites close to the borrow pit. This involved the survey of the prehistoric settlement remains to the east and west of the borrow pit area. A further evaluation was undertaken on a rectilinear stone mound in the SE of an extension to the borrow pit. Excavation proved this to be a field clearance cairn. The watching brief monitored all ground works for the wind farm. This located 20 clearance cairns and a linear stone bank. Of these features 17 were excavated. All the cairns excavated were shown to be to be simple field clearance cairns, associated with the settlement and field systems to the east of the borrow pit.
