Tarbert Conservation Initiative (TCI) has arranged for dry stone wall builder Douglas Irving to carry out cairn-building at Tarbert Castle on Wednesday 26 October and Thursday 27 October.  Interpretation panels for the information of visitors will be mounted on the finished cairns.

According to Robert McPhail of TCI, Douglas will be at the castle from 10am on both days, and will probably be working at the castle on Friday 28 October also.

Robert added: “If you are interested in learning by just watching or helping, please come up and visit”.

Robert can be contacted at (e-mail) sonamarg at btinternet.com.

The new cairns and interpretation panels mark the final phase of Tarbert Castle’s conservation strategy, which was prepared five years ago by TCI’s parent organisation Tarbert & Skipness Community Trust (TSCT).  Much of the work has been carried out by local volunteers, including local schoolchildren.
