A watching brief was undertaken in 2012 during the removal of material for the replacement of floors in two rooms of the Highlanders Museum, Fort George, by Highland Archaeology Services. The work covered the monitoring of the removal of rotten floor joists and infill material and the excavation of foundation trenches for sleeper walls to support a new suspended floor. No evidence was found of earlier features or of major alterations or refurbishment to the building. The shallow trenches for the new sleeper walls cut into clean, natural beach pebbles, sands and gravels. <1>
