Historic Scotland sponsors the Conservation and Climate Change AwardFor the second year Historic Scotland and Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) have come together to provide an important award to recognise outstanding achievements in architectural conservation and energy efficiency. The award recognises high quality, sustainable projects which also contribute to Scotland’s climate change targets.
Ian Walford, Historic Scotland’s Chief Executive said “Knockando Mill is a worthy winner of this year’s award. The commendable work at the wool mill was carried out sensitively and to the highest standards, to ensure a long term and sustainable future for this important site. The financial benefits for the local community will be felt immediately and the perpetuation of traditional skills such as spinning, warping and weaving, have been given a welcome boost thanks to the introduction of this new educational resource.”
