Archaeological Evaluation (April 2007)

NH 7985 8960 An archaeological evaluation was conducted in April 2007 to establish the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected by a development at the Square in Dornoch, Sutherland. Desk-based research was followed by an initial walkover survey and subsequent archaeological trenching evaluation of the site prior to development. Four trenches were cut, one long N/S orientated trench with three offsetting it to

the E. The structural remains from the Sutherland Arms Hotel were uncovered, including deposits from the 1941 fire that was responsible for its demise. We also uncovered drainage systems pre-dating the hotel, evidence for a pre-hotel structure, and cobbled and possible work surface areas.
