Activities

Archaeological Evaluation (October 2006 - December 2006)

NH 901 569 The final phase of fieldwork was undertaken at Lochloy Nairn in October - December 2006 prior to housing development. This follows on from previous investigations (DES 2001, 60; 2002, 75; 2003, 90). Work revealed one main area of settlement of pits and postholes of a probable Bronze Age date with a second area of a house of an Iron Age date. Other features revealed included a corn-drying kiln, hearths and other associated pits.

Full report to be deposited with HSMR and NMRS.
