Description

A watching brief was carried out by S Farrell in 2010 in regard to a condition required as part of a planning application on a greenfield development site located at Croftcroy, Farr, Inverness-shire. The proposed development was adjacent to a known hut circle. Survey work (see EHG4118) revealed a number of clearance cairns and a possible cultivation plot, lying around the hut circle. A number of cairns upon excavation were comprised of clearance material dumped atop large boulders of an unknown date. Subsequent work on a watching brief for the clearance of the site for the house plot and two adjacent plots revealed no archaeological features or deposits. No recommendations for further archaeological work were proposed. <1>
