Description

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group in 2016 during works carried out as part of the Tornagrain development site. It was commissioned by Turnberry Planning on behalf of their client Moray Estates ahead of service track excavation that passes within a buffer zone around a ‘souterrain’ identified by earlier archaeological works. AOC watched all excavations within the buffer zone and a single large pit feature was identified and fully recorded during the watching brief. <1> Note: The line of the water main as shown in the report is not quite correct.
