Historic Scotland Appoints Rothesay Apprentice

A Rothesay man is among 18 new Historic Scotland traditional skills apprentices - the largest single intake in the organisation’s history - to take up their posts as part of a four-year training programme. 

Luke MacDonald joins Historic Scotland as an apprentice stonemason and will be based at Rothesay Castle, which follows a call from Historic Scotland earlier this year for a new batch of recruits to ensure the on-going demand for traditional and essential skills across the historic environment is met.

To mark the start of their training, Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs visited Forth Valley College in Stirling to meet the 18 new apprentices and their course leaders.

The new additions will bring the total number of apprentices employed by Historic Scotland in the last five years to 48. By April 2014 Historic Scotland will have around 60 construction apprentices in training, making it one of the largest trainers of traditional crafts in Scotland and the UK. READMORE
