A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken by Cameron Archaeology in 2021 in advance of a proposed housing scheme on the east side of Aviemore on ground formerly the golf course. Thirty-two trenches totalling 9.5% of the developable area of the site were excavated. The south area was farm fields, not ploughed for many years, and very disturbed by ploughing, animal burrows and historical stone removal. The central area southwest of the Golf Clubhouse had been stripped of topsoil, natural subsoil dumped on the site and the topsoil replaced. There had also been quarrying and the west side of this area has many trees growing on a thin layer of rooty topsoil. North of the Clubhouse is a small field which has been extensively cultivated with roots, burrows and plough marks as well as burning from stubble or undergrowth burning. The area to the north is heavily tree covered and the remaining open areas have a shallow cover of rooty topsoil. No archaeological finds or features were identified during this work and it was recommended that no further archaeological work is required during the current planning application. <1>
