The Migdale Hoard is a priceless collection
of early Bronze Age jewellery that was discovered in May
1900 by workmen blasting a granite knoll behind Bonar Bridge
near what is known as 'Tulloch Hill'.
Dating from about
2000BC, the artefacts are in the custody of the National
Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh. The Migdale Hoard includes
a bronze axe head, bronze hair ornaments, sets of bronze
bangles and anklets, and a series of beautifully carved jet
and shale buttons that may well have adorned a Bronze Age
