Description

This report covers fieldwork undertaken at Bogallan Croft, North Kessock, Ross-Shire on the 17th – 19th September 2014 ahead of development of a house site. This revealed eleven features, comprising ten field drains and a pit. All were recorded and samples of the drains were excavated, particularly where they intersected other drains, in order to establish a dating sequence. All drains are of the basic stonefilled type and probably date to the 19th or early 20th centuries. The pit was half-sectioned and sampled, but no dating evidence was found. No further archaeological work is recommended for this site.<1>
