List of Sites
Some of the hoard of bronze goods found
at one site on two separate occasions [replica]
In 1885, a boy was digging out a ferret under a rocky scarp known as Creagh Beathach when he found two spearheads and a socketed gouge.
Many years later, in 1962, when Marion Campbell and Mary Sandeman were making an inventory of the archaeological sites in Mid Argyll, they were led to the same spot by the late Alistair Carmichael, who remembered being shown the spot as a boy by the original finder, who had then been an old man. There they found three axeheads, two rings and a knife.
The hoard is now kept at the National Museum of Scotland.
There is a replica at Kilmartin House
