An archaeological evaluation was carried out by CFA Archaeology Ltd in 2017 ahead of an application for development on land adjacent to Sir Walter Scott Drive at Slackbuie on the South-East outskirts of Inverness. Five trenches were excavated,
covering 287m². Aside from field drains, six negative features were recorded. A culvert drain in Trench 2 was assumed to be post-medieval. Five other features were identified. Four were thought to be stone holes, one of these contained modern finds. The remaining feature could have been a small pit but contained no finds or environmental inclusions, such as charcoal.<1>
