An archaeological watching brief was carried out by GUARD Archaeology Ltd in 2018, on behalf of Causeway Geotech and Jacobs U.K. Ltd, during ground investigation work as part of the A9/A96 Inshes to Smithton Detailed Ground Investigation work programme. A total of 65 mechanically excavated trial pits, 11 soakaways, and 9 hand-excavated borehole inspection pits were monitored. One possible archaeological feature (TPISD50) was identified during the ground investigation works. The feature comprised a small oval shaped spread containing charcoal and was fully excavated and recorded. The fill consisted of loose light brown silty sand with occasional flecks of charcoal, no artefacts were recovered. No other archaeological features or artefacts were revealed during the monitored ground works. <1>
