An archaeological metal-detecting survey was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group in 2018 for the Smithton and Culloden Flood Protection Scheme, near Inverness. The metal detector survey covered 100% of the site, or all accessible ground. The survey was carried out by two archaeologists, who walked over the area in transects no greater than 2.5m wide, which allowed for a degree of overlap between transects ensuring ground was not missed. The survey was undertaken using two Minelab X-Terra metal-detectors. It was conducted in a systematic manner to assess the content
of the topsoil and the archaeological potential of the site. Only some modern metal artefacts were recovered. <1>
