Carlingwark Loch



Though crannogs are believed to be Iron Age a bronze sword was found in Carlingwark Loch (and a flint arrowhead, knife and scraper found at NX772613).

The small crannog near Ash Island was discovered during limited drainage in 1765. Fir Island is not artificial but is reached over a prehistoric causeway.

A large hoard of weapons has been found in the loch.
