ND35NW 87 centred on ND 333 573

ND 333 573 (centre) Eight fields were walked either side of the A9 in April 2002, on the strip of land directly behind Sinclair Bay, and over 1500 lithics were collected. A fairly high density spread of material was recorded across the whole area, with material including a large number of cores and scrapers (predominantly side and thumbnail), a single lozenge-shaped arrowhead, and a broken bifacial knife recovered. Five discrete clusters of material were identified in the fields to the S of Quoys of Reiss Farm, each producing between 100-500 lithics. The assemblages recovered from each were comparable, with a high proportion of primary working represented. The clusters also produced flake cores, scrapers and a number of truncated flakes.
