By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Tuesday June 19 2018

Police Scotland is appealing for information following the theft of a historic claymore sword from a museum in the Small Isles.

The sword was removed from Canna House on the Isle of Canna.

It is believed to have been taken sometime between Wednesday, June 6 and Saturday, June 9.

The 7ft sword - which dates back to the 17th century - is described as a two handled broadsword with a double-edged blade, a wooden grip and a stamped fleur de lys.

Commenting Reporting officer Constable Neil Davies said:

"Incidents like this are extremely unusual in the Small Isles and I can assure people we are working to establish what has happened to the sword.

"We would like to speak to anybody with information which could help with our enquiries.

"There is no indication that entry was forced to the museum so anybody who was at Canna House over this period may have information which could assist us."

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference NP2758/18, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
