Description

A desk-based assessment and subsequent watching brief at Tigh-na-Lios, Newmore, by Invergordon as part of a project for a replacement house with associated access and services. The modern house sits close to an early 17th century tower house named Newmore, which fell into disuse in the late 18th or early 19th century. The ground around the tower was used until the 1970s as a market garden, with the remains of greenhouses dating to the late 19th / early 20th century evident. Subsequent monitoring of groundworks revealed only two archaeological features of interest of two rubble drains, associated with the greenhouses of the late 19th century, and a shallow oval pit of an unknown date. <1>
