Under the soil of Scotland lies traces of its history and the treasures of the nation's past. Now, searching this soil is a growing number of metal detectorists, with membership of the main national organisation that guides the hobby reaching record levels.
Buoyed by incredible finds that have made headlines around the world, such as the discovery of the £1.98 million Viking-era Galloway hoard of silver and jewels, numbers of those taking up the hobby are on the rise.

The growing popularity of metal detecting is being met with a cautious welcome as well as an acknowledgement that Scotland's history is being enhanced by those taking to muddy fields in search of pieces of the past.
