Description

Ross and Cromarty Archaeological Services undertook an archaeological watching brief in 2012 during installation of the water main renewal on two areas of National Trust for Scotland land in Drumbuie and Plockton in Wester Ross. There were no significant archaeological features of interest identified during the development. One archaeological artefact of interest, a probable horse cart step, was recovered from an unstratified topsoil layer in Drumbuie village. The ruins of one Post Medieval building, located close to the new trench in Drumbuie, were recorded during the watching brief. <1>
