An evaluation, comprising trial trenching, was carried out in the garden south of Kinmylies House, Inverness, in 1990 by J Wordsworth prior to proposed redevelopment. The site of a pre-reformation chapel was reported to be on the site. A previous geophysical survey (see EHG3711) had detected several resistance and magnetic anomalies. Due to limitations of time and funding only three days could be spent on site. In order to sample the site effectively, transects were cut by machine across the site. In total 300m of trenches were excavated. No evidence for the site of the church or any associated medieval settlment was recovered. The only possible archaeological feature was a possible wall line one stone thick and c.0.3m wide running north-south. A feature almost 4m wide and at least 1m deep may have been an in-filled well. <1>
