The North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NoSAS) undertook an archaeological survey of Urchany in 2015.
Site B51; Ruined building. This roughly constructed building, 4m x 3m, is situated circa 12m south of the main Urchany track, and 45m west of the Allt na Criche. It lies on gently sloping ground to the south. The double skinned walls are 0.5m wide with a maximum height of 1.0m, and constructed of boulders. A doorway is evident in south. The appearances are those of a relatively modern building, perhaps 19th century and possibly related to sheep. <1>
