Great news! The project to rescue Clachtoll Broch, part of which was funded through the Coigach & Assynt Living Landscape Partnership, has been nominated as Rescue Project of the Year in the Current Archaeology Magazine Awards programme. The project is led by Historic Assynt, with excavations carried out by AOC Archaeology, and has revealed a huge amount about Iron Age life in the area.
