An archaeological evaluation was conducted in April 2007 to establish the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected by a development at The Square in Dornoch, Sutherland. This was done in order to fulfil the planning condition outlined by the Highland Council. Desk-based background research was followed by an initial walkover survey and subsequent archaeological trenching evaluation of the site prior to development. The footings of the former Sutherland Arms Hotel were found as well as features of possible earlier date. As a result of this, the foundation trenches for the new building are to be excavated archaeologically and any archaeology within them will be recorded before removal. <1>
