Videotext Communications was commissioned by Channel 4 to carry out an archaeological evaluation as part of the Time Team television series on the shore of Loch Migdale, Sutherland, Highlands (centred on NH 625 916). The crannog on the Loch was examined by a team of four underwater archaeologists led by Dr Nicholas Dixon, Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology. Dr Dixon concluded that there was no doubt that the remains discovered underwater at Loch Migdale are those of an artificial island or crannog connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway. It was suggested initially that, on the basis of the tool marks on the timbers, that the crannog may be of Late Bronze Age date, though two radiocarbon determinations support an Iron Age date which is consistent with the evidence from many other crannogs. <1>
