Description

A controlled strip watching brief was conducted by West Coast Archaeological Services in 2014 during the topsoil clearance of a site for a new house and agricultural building at 9 Croft, Poolewe. The demolition of an existing house and byre was also observed. Six features of archaeological interest were recorded on the site, including boundary walls, an existing ruinous building, the remains of an earlier structure and a pit of unknown use. Although several artefacts which may be associated with the site were recovered from the topsoil and demolition layer of the building, their original context was uncertain. <1>
