Ballachulish Goddess

The Ballachulish Goddess was discovered under peat in November 1880, during the digging of foundations for a house on the banks of Loch Leven.

She is carved out of a single piece of alder wood which has been carbon dated to around 600BC, giving evidence of the existence of Iron Age persons in the area 2500 years ago.
