Full Description

NH78NE 29 752 873

A number of sites were investigated by the Tain Archaeology Group during the first stage of a survey of the Cuthill Links post-glacial shingle bar and dune complex in 1993. Work to date indicates the presence of a variable density background scatter of worked stone debris over much of the shingle bar to the N and S of the new bridge. Majority of lithic material recovered consists of struck quartz and quartzite, with small amounts of flint and chert also being noted. A number of eroding midden sites were investigated.
