An archaeological field evaluation was carried out by Headland Archaeology in 2003 at Cradlehall Farm Drive, Inverness, in advance of proposed site development. Eighteen trial trenches were machine excavated on the site totalling approximately 1000 linear metres equating to approximately 5% of the overall development area. The trenches were randomly placed across the site in order to provide as broad a coverage as possible in the search for archaeological features. The trenching did not uncover any traces of past activity other than that connected with modern agricultural drainage. In the absence of any archaeological discoveries no further work was considered necessary on this site, though other areas connected with this application may require separate investigation. <1>
