Description

December 2008: A watching brief and small excavation were carried out within a sheet- piled cofferdam prior to the insertion of a concrete base for a temporary jetty on the shoreline to the west of Urquhart Castle (NH 5302 2870). An area of slippage at the base of the slope east of the Water Gate (NH 5308 2856) was also examined and recorded prior to remedial work. There were no finds or features of archaeological significance. February 2009: A further visit was made to monitor the taking of core samples in the area of the proposed new jetty (NH 5300 2870). There were no finds or features of archaeological significance encountered. <1>
