An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Cromarty East Church by Highland Archaeology Services Ltd in May 2007 on behalf of the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust (SRCT) to inform plans for repair and conservation works. Five small trenches were opened against the church wall, and one through the southern churchyard boundary, to establish presence and position of the existing drainage arrangements, as well as the nature of the building’s foundations and the churchyard boundary wall. These trenches revealed fairly substantial modern drains running along the exterior of the church walls, which appeared to flow away from the building into a combined sewer; more extensive excavations would be necessary to locate the full extent of the present drainage system. <1>
