Cromarty Courthouse Museum
Metal detecting can be a frustrating hobby – but very rewarding in good weather and for anyone fortunate enough to have a find like this!
However, it is quite rare to find a tress ring. This one is actually incomplete. In fact, detectorists are unlikely to strike treasure! However, in Scotland, all objects of archaeological significance must be declared to the Treasure Trove.
