An archaeological watching brief was carried out in July 2006 to record the nature and extent of any archaeology revealed during excavations for a new house at Littleferry, Sutherland, in response to a planning condition. A pit was identified as a natural feature. A scatter of redeposited lithic artefacts was noted, mixed with modern debris. The source of the material was unclear. No other features or artefacts of archaeological significance were found.
