NS 015 455 A rescue excavation was carried out 28 March – 5 April 2012 under the Historic Scotland human remains call-out contract. The excavation was prompted by the discovery of cremated human remains and two short cists in the disused quarry by the estate owner. The excavation recorded a short cist that contained a deposit of cremated bone, a Bronze Age Food Vessel and a flint dagger. The second cist located beside the first was empty. Other linear features discovered nearby seemed to be associated with an old train track.
