Funding Boost for Scotland's Heritage

Media Releases

Heritage projects ranging from the landmark Pearce Institute in Govan; one of Scotland’s finest Greek Revival house and an Oil Storage Tank in Orkney used as a visitor centre are to benefit from grants announced by Culture Minister Michael Russell today (Tuesday). Six buildings will share more than £790,000 from Historic Scotland’s Building Repairs Grants. The Minister said: “In the current economic climate it is essential that we support projects that will make a real and visible difference to their communities and Scotland as a whole. It is important that when we invest money in our heritage we recognise the wealth of variety across Scotland. The buildings in this round are a wonderful example of the various building styles which will provide training opportunities in a number of traditional skills. “
