Accessing Scotland's Past Project

Records show that a bronze spearhead found in the vicinity of Inverlochy farm was purchased by the National Museum of Antiquities in 1938. The spearhead is thought to date from the middle to late Bronze Age. It is leaf-shaped, with a pair of loops on the socket for fixing the spearhead to its shaft.
