Full Description

The North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NoSAS) undertook an archaeological survey of Urchany in 2015.

Site H04; Recessed Platform. This 'D'-shaped platform, c9.3m N-S x 6.7m E-W, is recessed into the east facing slope on its west side, with stone buttressing at the east front. It lies in an area of muir burn dating to 2013. A considerable amount of colluvium appears to have spread down onto the back of the platform. There is now no evidence of a structure on the surface. <1>
