The North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NoSAS) undertook an archaeological survey of Urchany in 2015. The “Purple Area” contains abundant evidence of cultivation – rig, enclosures and clearance cairns. Twelve cairns were identified in the survey, none of which had the appearance of burial cairns, which distinguishes them from the cairns in the “Green Area”.
