Event ID 1002626

Category Recording

Type Watching Brief


In November 1992, a watching brief was carried out at this site by GUARD during ground-preparation for a pumping station at Balnabruaich, near Portmahomack, and in the area of the reported chapel site. Although a number of linear features were observed in the sand sub-soil, none was of any antiquity. The farmer, Mr Duff, reported that the skull had been found further to the E than the site of the pumping station. The results of the watching brief were therfore negative.
