Archaeology Notes

NH75NW 326 725 565 (centre)

A watching brief was undertaken between March and May 2004 for a series of new water mains in the burgh of Fortrose. Only two archaeological features of interest were noted: two small pits of unknown date. Most of the areas monitored had been heavily disturbed by existing services.

Full report lodged with Highland SMR and the NMRS.
