- Description: (1) In April and May 2010, CFA Archaeology Ltd undertook a watching brief at Upper Dalhousie Quarry and identified three areas of archaeological remains: a relict field boundary; a pit cluster; and the partial remains of a double palisaded enclosure. Subsequent excavations of the pit cluster and enclosure were carried out as part of the same programme of works. Two of the pits identified contained Early Neolithic Carinated Bowl pottery and a third contained potentially Early Bronze Age pottery. No dating material was recovered from the enclosure, which was found to comprise two curvilinear gullies with the trace of a third possible gully.
