Three small machine-dug trenches were opened under archaeological supervision. Trench 1 was positioned to investigate the frontage along Argyle Street, and possibly also pick up any activity associated with the former dairy, Rose Cottage. Trench 2 was located to investigate the footings of the byre. Trench 3 was laid out to cross two low rises in the lawn, which appeared to be possible building platforms, to investigate the former property boundary shown on the 1874 map and the area to the rear of the former dairy. A fourth trench was abandoned in favour of extending Trench 3. No trace of any activity predating the 19th century was found. <1> <2>
