Description

A watching brief was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2014 during topsoil stripping at Gollanfield Avenue, Rosmarkie, Ross-Shire in response to a planning condition on permission a new house on the site. Site stripping for a driveway had been observed and reported previously (see EHG4213). On this occasion, three features were recorded, including a feature that may have been two inter-cutting pits, but was otherwise undated. Two other features were judged to be modern in origin. Based on the results, no further archaeological work was recommended. <1>
