A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2019 at Craigleach, Dunain to the south west of Inverness in advance of works for two house plots, in order to satisfy a planning condition by Highland Council. Tree protection zones and an area of previous disturbance limited the area available for trenching. Four trenches were opened totalling an area of 164.8m². No archaeologically significant features were encountered during the evaluation. Two features were confirmed to be a natural depression and a modern posthole. A modern waterpipe was left in situ. Topsoil was noted to be very deep across the site, in one area a natural hollow extending to 1.7m below the present ground level had filled with hillwash. No further work is recommended. <1>
