EHG4143 - Excavation - Coldstream Cottage, Swordle Bay, Ardnamurchan (2009 season)
Ardnamurchan Transitions Project
In 2009 archaeological excavation was carried out by the Ardnamurchan transitions Project in August and September. <1> A single trench was opened over the southeast corner of what appeared to be a plan of the remains of the southern room of a double roomed structure of likely post-medieval date. This initial excavation revealed a the upper coursing of a double skinned wall with rubble infill on the south-east corner of the structure and deposits of rubble. Two test pits were also excavated in another structure revealing an enclosure of a possible animal pen. <2>
