Good Fortune:

The story behind these armlets is a particularly inspiring one.

“They¬†were found in Kilmallie, just outside Fort William, in 1871 by a crofter who dreamt that if he dug in a particular spot he would find treasure.”

They have been identified as a pair of Irish, Late Bronze Age gold penannular armlets.

The crofter who found the armlets gave them to Lord Lochiel who remitted his rent for life.

Unfortunately there is no record of the find spot although it is probably in the Corpach area. (The armlets are on loan to the West Highland Museum from Sir Donald Cameron of Lochiel).
