We are looking at new proposals for community archeaology on the site working with Adopt a Monument and Kilmartin House Museum.
We have now determined that 12 sheep is the ideal number for the site. The sheep are on site for conservation grazing and this is very effective in achieving low maintenance cropped turf rather than the big task of strimming which would be the only alternative. TCI volunteer shepherds continue to look after the flock each day.
We have a new project on land behind the Castle - TARBERT CASTLE COMMUNITY WOODLAND and voluteers have completed clearing the ditch, forming pool, planting trees, fencing and paths.
Volunteers and artists now working on a sculpture walk see seperate section of web site for details.
This winter we have just completed a new boardwalk linking the Castle area to the woodland and sculpture walk providing a circular route to walk around the site.
Our Community orchard is now complete
Main access route upgraded with the help of TSCT and Paths for All
See menu ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG for summary of new project now programmed for 2019 and for which we hope to raise funds of £25K.
The Castle property and surrounding area which includes a Community Woodland and Orchard is a unique Heritage Park with something for everyone
