Description

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2017 during preliminary ground work for the construction of a new cycle track at Balcroy, Kilravock. The project represented the second phase of archaeological monitoring undertaken for the new cycle track, the first stage having been undertaken in 2014. A single concentration of rounded cobbles was revealed within topsoil, which possibly reflected the site of a field clearance cairn of unknown date. No other significant archaeological deposits, features or finds were identified during the course of the watching brief and no further analysis or reporting is considered necessary. <1>
