    My son found a red deer antler a few years ago. Compared with the Scottish red deer, the antlers grow bigger down here with the longer summers and richer habitat. It's got 10 points on a single antler, which I think is quite rare (16 on two makes it a "monarch").

    Umm... I need to keep searching. In my foraging defense, I did once find a near whole whale skeleton (head missing)washed up in a cleft on the rocky point(Rubha an Dunain), south of Loch Brittle, Skye. There was a whole set of ribs, etc., looking like a scene from the Flintstones, but the ribs were too heavy to trail back to the tent so we (my partner and I) carted a couple of vertebrae, which we still have in the garden as a... erm, conversation piece. My neighbour (a marine biologist) thought they might have been from a minke whale.
