Abstract:
A watching brief was kept during the excavation of a 9m-wide trench along the route of a pipeline for a new hydro-electric scheme N of Keltneyburn, near Aberfeldy. Earlier surveys by SUAT had identified several sites close to this route but most were avoided during this development. The only area requiring archaeological intervention was a trench, 120m long, running N/S across rough pasture to the N of Tom Liath and W of the Allt Mor which constitutes the upper reaches of the Keltney Burn. The S end of the trench cut through remnants of an early field wall, part of a network of boundaries which had been superseded by a later system of field walls presumably dating to the 19th century. The early walls formed part of a pre-Improvement landscape which included a farmstead, large enclosures and clearance cairns (NN75SE 14). A rectangular structure, just visible beneath snow cover outside the trench at NN 7608 5187, probably belonged to this settlement. The trench cut across one of the clearance cairns at NN 7608 5181. A hut circle (another element of NN75SE 14) was located just beyond the trench, at NN 7610 5185; another possible hut circle was also noted at NN 7613 5184 snow cover rendered this interpretation insecure.
