Archaeology Notes

ND25NW 55 centred on ND 230 570

ND 230 570 (centre) Eleven fields were walked along the N side of Loch Watten, around Oslie cairn and the Grey Cairn Broch, in April 2002. Around 200 lithics were recovered, predominantly from the land along the shore of the loch, but no discrete scatters were identified. The material recovered includes platform cores (flake), retouched flakes, a scraper and a few blades.
