An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group in 2022 at Drakies House, Culcabock Avenue, Inverness, ahead of a proposed housing development. The upcoming development will include the construction of 24 residential units and associated works on land within the grounds of Drakies House. The evaluation area was located northeast of Drakies House. The southern part of the development area has been subjected to a previous phase of work. The evaluation comprised the excavation of nineteen trenches equal to 1,563 m² with an additional 1,304m excavated to determine the extents of archaeological remains uncovered. Archaeological features were found in seven trenches, and consisted of pits, post holes and a ditch. A boundary ditch and line of postholes identified within this area have been interpreted as post-medieval in date. Only a small assemblage of finds was recovered during the evaluation, and the majority of features are of unknown date. <1>
