Welcome to the Tiree and Coll Archaeology Database website. We are working to assemble all the archaeological records up to 1950 relating to Tiree, Gunna and Coll—site records, museum collections, excavation reports, publications, photographs, films and audio recordings—in one place.

You can search the database using the ‘Objects’ tab above, and then refine your search by island, township, object type, material, period, collector and current location. Or you can do a free word search using the window above.

This is, and always will be, a work in progress. To this end, we welcome comments, advice, corrections and additional information via our ‘Contact’ page.
