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.

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.
