A cannon from the doomed ship HMS Bounty has sold for £20,000 after being found on a Scottish estate.
The valuable gun was salvaged from the vessel by the rebellious crew in the wake of the Mutiny on the Bounty 229 years ago.
After casting their commander, Captain Bligh, adrift the crew set on fire and sunk the Bounty off Pitcairn Island in the Pacific Ocean.
It was sold by Dumfries-based auctioneer Thomson Riddick who said its discovery meant the whereabouts of all four cannons on the Bounty were finally now known.
