A watching brief was maintained during excavation of trenches ahead of the installation of new signage at Kinnaird Head Castle, Lighthouse and Wine Tower. Five trenches were excavated - four around the grounds of the lighthouse and one next to the Wine Tower. A piece of a prehistoric flint blade was recovered from the trench at NJ 9981 6756, although the ground had been previously disturbed - as shown by the presence of modern pottery within the same context.
