Excavation (February 1991)

Remedial work on the collapsing north bank of Sruth a' Mhuilinn necessitated archaelogical assessment of the stream bank at the western periphery of the monastic enclosure. A small cutting, 25 metres square, investigated back-filled, man-made, rectilinear pool or basin, cut by the present course of the stream, as well as several adjacent, and potentially associated pits. Originally it was thought possible that the pool represents the site of an early mill, though the subsequent discovery of coal fragments in some of the pit fills makes this seem unlikely.
