A watching brief was carried out by GUARD in 1995 during the excavation of geo-technical test-pits and boreholes prior to the laying of a new sewage pipe between Inverness and the proposed new treatment works and outlet site at Allanfearn. The field investigated was located immediately east of the Coach House Inn. Two boreholes and three test-pits were placed close to the burn on the south side of the field, which was under pasture at the time, to remove them as far as possible from the known archaeology (identified during an earlier geophysical survey - see EHG4445). No archaeological features were exposed. <1>
It should be noted that <1> does not contain a plan of the location of the test pits and boreholes and the approximate locations for GIS have been derived from a plan in a report for a subsequent, but unrelated, investigation.
