An auger survey was carried out in three areas by CFA Archaeology Ltd over a 10 day period in October and November 2005 as part of community archaeology project with Clyne Heritage Society, NOSAS and Shorewatch at Brora Back Beach, Clyne. The aim of the augering was to obtain an indication of the nature of the deposits below gound without being too invasive. Augering was used to investigate the area between the 'Saltman's House' and the coast, and to determine whether the buildings visible in the dune section continued into the dune complex. It was also used to assess the area of the old golf course to determine if there were industrial remains beneath the surface. The depths and nature of the deposits encountered were recorded and can be found in appendix eight of the associated document. <1>
