Abstract:
A coastal and inter-tidal survey was conducted in the area of Weelie's Taing on Papa Westray employing a differential Global Navigation Satellite System (dGNSS) to record man-made features in the shallow water and above High Water Mark (HWM). Dry-suit wading around the harbour allowed examination of the submerged sediment and make-up of the structures. Some stripping of seaweed was required to expose features in order to understand whether they were constructed or of natural origin. A coastal and inter-tidal walkover of the surrounding bay of North Wick (from The Cletts to Surhoose Taing) also took place to locate the sites in their maritime landscape setting. The survey was conducted around spring low tides to maximize the area that could be surveyed, and during early spring to avoid conflict with seal pups. During the higher stages of tide the areas above the high-tide mark were investigated.
