NH 57664 62198 A watching brief was carried out, 14–17 November 2016, during work associated with the construction of a garage. An area of c15 x 15m was stripped of topsoil, and a stone-built revetment wall removed,

which was to be later reinstated. A number of features were recorded, including the revetment wall, the remains of a possible cobbled brick path and a rubble drain. The area has also been disturbed more recently by a modern electric cable trench. All the features were thought to relate to garden landscaping at Lemlair House. Photographs were also taken of a cup and ring marked stone in the grounds of Lemlair House.
