NG 8339 1725 A watching brief and evaluation was carried out, on 18 March 2013, during minor alterations to the broch entrance. Within the area of the entrance passage and connected guard cell a minimal amount of work was undertaken, principally weeding and the removal of superficial surface deposits. A photographic survey was undertaken of the guard cell. The excavation of a small trench in the broch revealed that archaeological deposits survive at a depth of 450mm, with evidence for some of these continuing into the entrance passage.
