Archaeology Notes

NH64SE 357 687 446

An archaeological evaluation was carried out in April 2004 on the construction of a new bingo hall at the junction between Sir Walter Scott Drive and Old Perth Road, during which a single pit containing a whole prehistoric pot was found. Subsequently, nine features which lay within the development area were excavated. These consisted of a possible oven and eight pits. Four of the pits were modern, one of which contained a horse burial. The other pits were of unknown date and purpose. The possible oven is also of unknown date.

Reports lodged with Highland SMR and the NMRS.
