Assemblage of 6 objects from the LochAssynt area was submitted to Treasure Trove (TT 33/00) and allocated to Inverness Museum (2001.028.001-006). See attached TT summary sheet. <2> <3>

There is documentation within the Inverness Museum archives regarding a number of post-medieval coins coming from the same location as the above 6 objects. There is a list of these coins and possibly a map of their findspots but is unclear whether they were in the possesion of the museum or submitted to Treasure Trove. <4>

A four figure grid reference had been given at the SE corner of Loch Assynt. This is general and indicative of Loch Assynt only. GW 25/05/20
