NM 6770 8580 (Brunary Burn), NM 6945 8515 (Borrodale), NM 6667 8650 (Arisaig).

Following a programme of archaeological work in 2005 (DES 2006, 86) which included the excavation of a burnt mound at Arisaig, pits and clearance cairns at Borrodale and two post-medieval buildings at Brunary Burn, a monitored topsoil strip was conducted at these locations in July and August 2007. No additional remains were recorded at Arisaig or Brunary Burn. A number of additional pits and ditches were indentified and subsequently excavated at Borrodale. These were in the main poorly defined and badly truncated. Few finds were recovered.
