Archaeology Notes

NH64NE 632.01 NH 66682 45539 Bus station (new)

NH 6669 4558 A desk-based assessment was undertaken for the redevelopment of the bus station. Study of cartographic and historical documentation revealed the site to have formerly been a school playground, which was also used as a parade ground for the Royal Artillery Volunteers Regiment in the 19th century. The site lies outwith the core of the medieval burgh, though nine skeletons were uncovered when the school was built in 1840.

Full report lodged with Highland SMR and the NMRS.
