Full Description

The North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NoSAS) undertook an archaeological survey of Urchany in 2015. The 1757 estate map, (see Fig 185), shows a 7-acre field called Reinadoul.

Site B103; Building, probably a dwelling. On a prominent platform, with views in all directions, this stone structure consists of tumbled walls up to 0.5m high and 0.6m wide. It is aligned NNE-SSW, with external dimensions 9m x 5m and internal dimensions 7m x 3m. The doorway lies in the middle of the SE wall. There are no obvious internal features. Three metres to the NE of the NE end of the building is a 1.5m diameter circle of stones. This can just be seen on the left in Fig 191, and in Fig 194. <1>

NGR adjusted based on 2009 aerial photographs. <2>
