NS 514 675 A watching brief was carried out during the groundwork phase of the development of Braehead southern sites due to the putative locations of Kings Inch Castle (NS56NW 1) and Elderslie House (NS56NW 42). During the later stages of these works building remains were uncovered at the presumed location of Elderslie House. Excavation was carried out over the building remains, revealing the floor plan of Elderslie House. A programme of targeted evaluation was also undertaken in order to locate any remains that may be associated with Inch Castle. The evaluation failed to identify any archaeological remains. However, excavation of the building remains of Elderslie House located structural features that may be interpreted as those of 15th-century Inch Castle.
