NO 57516 35964 The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) commissioned a watching brief on the machine
excavation a 5 x 2m pit created to facilitate the drilling of a groundwater borehole on the bank of a burn to the NE of
Carnoustie. The site lay immediately to the W of and below a cliff-top fortified settlement of later prehistoric date, and it was thought that occupation debris from this settlement might have been deposited on the stream bank below. The groundworks were monitored on 22 February 2007. No finds were made and no archaeological features were exposed.
