Clifton village is named for Tyndrum's lead mining founder, but it is the recent discovery of gold that is exciting the locals

Tyndrum has a long association with lead mining after Sir Robert Clifton discovered Lead Mining, subsequently providing employment in the area for over 100 years. He was rewarded by having little Clifton village named after him.

In the last few years excitement has been building as locals and miners face the prospect of chipping away at the 6 tonnes of gold and 25 tonnes of silver in the ground. Discovered 30 years ago it was previously thought unreachable, but mining practices have improved, and a group called Scotgold opened their mine in 2018 just a couple of miles from Tyndrum.

It is believed that there is 5 times more gold in the area than that already discovered and with Scotgold planning much larger exploration projects it is believed this is the start of Scotland's gold rush.

On your walk you may see a few hopeful locals or trekkers chancing their luck, panning for gold in the rivers. Be careful if you fancy trying it yourself as due to some draconian laws you require permission from the Crown, or you will be deemed to be breaking the law and unable to sell your loot!
