Description

Archaeological trial trenching was carried out by Highland Archaeology Services Ltd in 2017 on behalf of Barratt Homes Scotland in advance of a new housing development at Ness Castle (Phase 2). Most of the site had been truncated by landscaping, but a single small feature in the NW of the site contained prehistoric pottery; it has been suggested that this was the remnant of a burial cist. A controlled topsoil strip was carried out on the area immediately adjacent to the feature but no other significant features were found. <1>
