Trial trenching took place in connection with a planning application for four new houses. Nineteen trenches were excavated which included evaluation of four features identified during an initial site visit. Sixteen features were recorded during the trial trenching, and include field drains, modern services, clearance cairns, ploughmarks and two features of unknown use. Out of the six features of archaeological interest, one was a Post Medieval farmstead located beyond the NW boundary of the development site and is not under threat by the development. The remaining five features, ploughmarks, the remains of a possible stone structure and one pit, were excavated and recorded. No further work is recommended as a result of this evaluation. <1><2>
