An archaeological evaluation was carried out by AOC Archaeology Group in 2017 in advance of the construction of a new Chill Facility as part of the wider development of Inverness Airport Business Park, located on the south side of Inverness Airport. The evaluation was requested in order to inform developers of the archaeological potential of the site prior to development. Fieldwork was carried out on 26th June 2017 where nine trenches were excavated. The truncated remains of one post-hole were identified, along with two field drains and two modern machine-dug pits. While the post-hole indicates that there is archaeological potential in the wider area and conditions are promising for prehistoric settlement, there were no further indications that there would be substantial archaeological remains found within the development site. <1>
