Toddy’s Digs are part of a Registered Company: Searching Scotland Ltd owned by Colin Todd Irvine.  Toddy’s Digs are the founders of weekly metal detecting events (Digs) in Scotland which started in 2005 as Scottish Searchers.  Scottish searchers NO longer exist so if you see that name cropping up it is NOT our digs.  We have two or three digs per week if numbers allow usually on a Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday.  We also hold other weekend events usually after harvest in September.

Toddy’s dig attendees must be insured via the NCMD or FID to attend our digs.  The cost is very cheap so please buy it not to be disappointed.

I Toddy Irvine secure all our detecting land myself to ensure that it is suitable for our attendees to search.

I offer

  • Tuition on any metal detector
  • Rental

Colin Toddy Irvine I have been detecting 30 years and since 2003 I have been heavily involved in clubs and forums but holding the Original Scottish Rallies for 7 years and digs since 2005 has kept me involved in this hobby at ground level.
