An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2020 ahead of construction of a new house at Upper Cullernie Farm, Balloch to fulfil a planning condition. This included a pre-work desk-based assessment DBA. The watching brief monitored the removal of material within the footprint of the house. The area was found to be on sloping ground that had been built up and levelled with imported material. This imported material was mixed and contained modern rubbish including wire and glass. Beneath this material an orange-yellow natural was encountered. Within the natural four cut features were noted, however these were all of modern date and included two pipelines (one live at the time of excavation) and two animal burials with bones. No finds of archaeological significance were noted within the area and no further work is recommended. <1>
