An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Archaeology North Ltd in 2012 during demolition and ground works to construct a new dwelling at 6, Argyle Street, Dornoch. This work followed on from a standing building survey and trial trenching evaluation (see EHG3606 and EHG3607) carried out in 2010. The demolition of a byre standing in the west of the site was also to be recorded. Carved stones noted during the earlier phase of work were photographed, stored and re-used. One carved stone has been set into the chimney breast of the new house, while the others await re-siting. The watching brief identified the remnants of a partly robbed out dry stone wall property boundary dating from before 1874. Another boundary wall along the southern border of the site had been built in two phases, probably at the same time as the robbed out wall. The earliest phase of the byre may date from the same period. <1>
