A trial trenching evaluation was carried out by the Centre for Field Archaeology in 1999 on the site of a proposed water treatment works at Kyle of Lochalsh. This was the second phase of investigative work at the site, the first having been a programme of walkover and topographic surveys (see EHG4344). Fourtreen trenches were opened over features identified during the survey phase, providing a total coverage of c. 70m². While most of the features proved to be undated (though thought to be prehistoric in origin and related to the nearby hut circle that was not investigated) clearance cairns with low significance, the results suggested that more investigative work was required on Feature 7, whose stratigraphy proved more complex that anticipated. <1>
A third phase of work was subsequently carried out - see EHG617.
