Activities

Watching Brief (29 November 2010 - 9 May 2011)

NR 71865 20845 A watching brief was undertaken 29 November 2010–9 May 2011 during pipe-laying works associated with the upgrading of three sections of sewerage pipeline. Features of archaeological interest were identified in two sections. To the SE four walls, one relating to the Old Quay and two to an earlier shoreline were recorded along with 18th- / 19th-century building remains. A number of artefacts of similar date including pottery and glass were also recovered. A well, walls and other features associated with the 19th-century Kinloch Distillery were also recorded to the NW.
