Full Description

The Inverness Field Club, led by Donald Coghill, surveyed a number of sites in the Aird area between 1987 and 1989.

At low tide traces can be seen of a grassy track in the saltings running NE and then turning north to the edge of the burn at a point where small boats could have reached at high tide. This track was later cut off by a sea wall constructed probably at the time the burn was embanked in 1780. the track would have been replaced by another to reach a newly dug canal at NH 574 455 which was also cut off, this time by the railway in the early eighteen-sixties.
