From arrowhead to scarf in north Skye


A Bronze Age arrowhead found on a croft in north Skye has become the theme of a new range of neck scarves.

Made of a dark stone called chert, the 4,000-year-old arrowhead was found four years ago by Sandy Leahy (pictured) on her croft at Fiskavaig.

Earlier this month, Sandy – who co-owns Mor Books and the Windrush Cafe Studio in Struan – launched a range of tubular neck scarves with textile prints that she has designed based on the arrowhead, and a limited edition bronze replica necklace which she has worked on with a silversmith from Sheffield.

The arrowhead was this week taken to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh for assessment.
