Description

A watching brief was carried out by R Hanley in 1993 during surface stripping operations in the area of the demolished Kinmylies House and garden. No evidence was found for the medieval chapel thought from documentary sources to have existed on the site. A number of metalled garden path footings were exposed, along with other features associated with Kinmylies House. A drystone construction well was uncovered, sealed by an iron-banded mill-stone. The upper fills produced material of turn of the century date, along with a number of well fittings. The well chamber had been blocked with stone debris. <1>
