Emergency funding for Pitsligo Castle restoration

Pitsligo Castle Trust has been given an emergency loan of £100,000 for the restoration of both the castle and the adjacent kirk, which it is hoped will host both a Jacobite history centre and a heraldry centre. The Trust has secured funds from both Historic Scotland and the Rural Aberdeenshire Leader Programme, but the money will not be forthcoming intil November.
