Leadwork

Dunvegan Castle, Isle of Skye

We are currently nearing completion of the first phase of the restoration work to the castle, which dates back to the 13th century. This consisted of replacement of the existing copper flat roof with lead. In order to combat the changeable Isle of Skye weather a fully enclosed scaffold and temporary roof was erected for the duration of the works. This enabled us to maintain continuity throughout the year.
