Research and Restoration
Conan Pictish Stone
This stone has lain on the ground for some time, at least since the late 18th century, and has suffered some damage that will need repair. It will also need cleaning, recording and mounting. It will then be transferred to Dingwall Museum, in Easter Ross. It will look great in the front window of the museum, and will make quite an attraction, not only for the museum but also the town.
Govan Stones Project
Discover the unique collection of early medieval stones carved in the 9th-11th centuries to commemorate the power of those who ruled the Kingdom of Strathclyde. One of Glasgow’s most important historical and cultural assets, explore the 31 monuments within the beautiful setting of Govan Old Church.
The Cabrach Trust
Working to safeguard a fragile, significant Scottish community. This remote and haunting land has a history which stretches back to the very first inhabitants of Scotland, and it was once the thriving hub of an illicit whisky industry. An exciting regeneration project to develop a working historical distillery and heritage centre will be the first to tell the ‘secret’ story of illicit whisky distilling and smuggling.
Caithness Broch Project
There are more broch sites in Caithness than anywhere else in Scotland, yet as a counrty, so little is done to promote them. By rebuilding a Broch, using the same techniques as the original builders, Caithness Borch Project will provide an insight into how Iron Age people lived their lives in Caithness.
The project explores the prehistoric and early medieval archaeology of Glenshee. The team trains volunteers in the excavation and recording of Medieval sites, and assists with open days and school visits. The project’s longer-term aims are to use the knowledge gained to build an experimental reconstruction of the house, enhance interpretations of the area’s past and create opportunities for increasing tourism and employment.
