Vertical air photography (BKS NJ16N 2636208, flown 9 July 1976) has recorded the cropmarks of a circular enclosure, a rectangular enclosure, a rectangular building, rig-and-furrow and some features of possible prehistoric origin across the whole of this field.
NJ 177 696 An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in June 2002 in advance of pipe-laying operations at Plewlands Farm, near Lossiemouth. The adjacent field contains extensive cropmarks, however none of these extended into the site. The excavation identified five small undated pits, one containing burnt material. No artefacts were recovered.
