ARO2: In the Shadow of Dun da Lamh: An Archaeological Evaluation near Spey Dam, Laggan

By Alan Hunter Blair & Susan Ramsay

An archaeological evaluation of a site compound area in advance of development at Spey Dam near Laggan, was undertaken by GUARD Archaeology due to the proximity of archaeological remains such as the site of St Michael's Chapel and the deserted township of Crathie. The trial trench evaluation encountered a number of archaeological features. A clearance cairn was identified towards the north-western part of the development area, while towards the south-east in Trench 7, a deposit containing a good quantity of burnt faunal bone and charcoal, possibly representing the remains of a hearth, was encountered next to the ruinous remains of a dry stone structure.
