EHG5395 - Walkover and topographic surveys - Urchany

Technique(s)

Organisation

North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NOSAS)

Date

April 2015

Description

Walkover and topographic surveys of roughly four square kilometres at Urchany near Beauly were carried out by the North of Scotland Archaeological Society in 2015. On older maps this area is called the “Lands of Urchany” which includes the settlement names of: Gillie Phaeton (variously Belloan); Claiginn (at times, Urchany); Coulnabottach (Coulnabodach) and Allt na Creiche. The ground to be covered was divided into five areas, roughly demarcated by the burns and valleys of the undulating, south-sloping land. A large number of new archaeological sites were recorded ranging from prehistoric hut circles to post-medieval settlements. <1>
