Musket ball at 'secret army' camp in Lochaber

A musket ball has been found in a part of the Highlands with close links to Bonnie Prince Charlie which was later used for training secret agents.
Archaeologists said the find at Lochailort in Lochaber was post medieval and it would be sent to the Royal Armouries in Leeds for analysis.
Prince Charles Edward Stewart fled Scotland from nearby Loch nan Uamh.
Spent bullets thought to date from Lochailort's use as a camp during World War II have also been uncovered.
Mussleburgh-based CFA Archaeology carried out a metal detector survey of the site in March this year.
The work was commissioned by salmon farming company Marine Harvest which plans to develop the area.
