The topographical and geophysical survey of the uplands included sites at Blackshouse burn and Meadowflatts, earthworks at Chester Hill, and prehistoric landscapes at Cairngryffe Hill and Swaites Hill. Fieldwalking in the lower slopes and valleys revealed hundreds of lithics, including pitchstone while trial excavation at Carmichael uncovered a late Mesolithic knapping floor, a hearth, a possible post-built structure and a possible ring ditch.
