Description

An archaeological watching brief at the site of a new garage in the grounds of Lemlair House near Dingwall. An area of approximately 15m by 15m was stripped between 14th and 17th November 2016. Works included the removal of a stone built revetment wall, which is to be later reinstated. A number of features were recording in the area of the new garage, including the revetment wall, the remains of the possible cobbled brick path and a rubble drain. The area has also been disturbed more recently by a modern electric cable trench. All the features were excavated (where necessary) and recorded during fieldwork and no further archaeological work is recommended. <1>
