Abstract:
ARCHAS Cultural Heritage Ltd were commissioned by SP Energy Networks to undertake an archaeological walkover survey associated with the installation of an 11kv cable to connect the Dersalloch Windfarm to the grid. The route of the proposed cable was considered archaeologically sensitive due to the recorded presence of a small settlement comprising up to 10 structures. The record for this site failed to provide a specific location and as such the West of Scotland Archaeology Service requested that a walkover survey be completed in order to guide any future works. The walkover survey identified a total of eight sites in the vicinity of the proposed cable. Of these, the settlement previously recorded was accurately pinpointed and a total of seven structures or possible structures identified. The survey was hampered by the dense vegetation present on such an upland site in Summer. ARCHAS recommend that the proposed cable route be moved to avoid the archaeological features. Should this not be possible, a phased programme of works should be undertaken, starting with micro-siting of the cable; excavation; marking of features in the vicinity and; a watching brief.
