Headland Archaeology (UK) Ltd was commissioned to undertake a programme of archaeological works as part of pre-application works for the proposed redevelopment of an area of arable land and felled forestry near Inverness Airport, Dalcross. This consisted of a desk-based assessment of known heritage sources and an archaeological evaluation of eighteen trial trenches. Fiedlwork was undertaken in late 2021. One of the trenches specifically targeted a post-medieval croft house which had been previously recorded within the site boundary (HER MHG55858). The evaluation successfully identified the location and surviving extent of the croft house wall in the east of the proposed development area. In addition to this, four shallow linear features were identified, relating to agricultural activity in the north west of the site. A isolated small pit was located within Trench Fourteen, with no associated features recorded. <1>
