A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken by CFA Archaeology Ltd in 2006 at the proposed location of Castle Stuart Golf Links, Balnaglack, Inverness. One hundred and one trial trenches were excavated, amounting to 20,711m² (c.5%), across the locations of the findspot of medieval artefacts (NH75SW 25), buildings recorded on historic maps, and an area of former crofts. A scatter of isolated pits was recorded within the area of crofts, one of which contained sherds of Early Neolithic pottery. It was considered possible that some of the other pits were also of prehistoric date. However, no concentrations were recorded which could indicate the former focus of settlement or other activity. <1>
The excavation assemblage (Neolithic pot sherds) was submitted to Treasure Trove (TT 97/11) and allocated to Inverness Museum. <>
