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 jacket.
