NT 4418 7709 (centre) Human skeletal material was unearthed during landscaping work in the back garden of Evergreen House. A subsequent excavation revealed the remains of at least five adult individuals. Three of these were crouched inhumations while the other two had been disturbed. Two of the crouched inhumations were contained within stone cists which suggest a Bronze Age or Iron Age date. A stone spread associated with the burials may have formed part of a cairn.

A full report has been lodged with the NMRS.
