Further excavations were carried out within and around 'E' in 1976-7. Its wall was shown to be about 2.0 m wide and composed of rounded boulders of varying sizes. No evidence of any internal structure was noted, though dark soil containing some large pieces of charcoal and carbonised seeds was located. Numerous sherds of undecorated, coarse, gritty pottery were found. The pottery and samples of soil and charcoal are in Dundee Museum.

In July 1980 the E half of platform 'A' was excavated, producing structure post holes and similar prehistoric material to that taken from platform 'E'. (Carbon-14 dates from 'E' suggest a Late Bronze Age occupation.) Excavation is sue to continue in 1981; a report is pending. L M Thoms, Dundee Museum
