Description

Archaeological fieldwork was carried out to investigate and record features of potential archaeological significance that might be affected by construction of a housing development at Ness Castle, SW of Inverness. Trial trenching carried out on this site in 2010 (EHG3605) identified a number of possible archaeological features where further investigation was recommended. Although some of these appear to have been destroyed in the interim, those remaining were investigated and found to represent clearance cairns and a drain. One clearance pit was also investigated. No further archaeological mitigation is recommended.<1>
