Archaeology Notes

NH74NW 131 710 455

An evaluation of land off Murray Road was carried out in August 2004 in advance of a proposed housing development. Thirteen trenches (1150m2) representing a 5% sample of the area were excavated.

A single undated pit was identified. Although comminuted charcoal was recovered from the basal fill, no artefacts were recovered, either from this feature or elsewhere on the site. The pit is thought to have been an isolated feature of relatively recent date.

Report lodged with Highland SMR and the NMRS.
