SPAB Scotland are pleased to be able to offer this rare chance to be up close to the wonderful stone carvings on the Burns Monument in Alloway, Ayrshire. The National Trust for Scotland are undertaking a programme of major repair work to the monument, chiefly comprising lime grouting the ashlar work from inside in order to fill many voids throughout the structure. In association with the main contractor Conservation Masonry Ltd, the event will be run by building surveyor and clerk of works to the monument project, Kinlay Laidlaw, who will give a short lecture about the building and the proposed repair works prior to leading the tour on the scaffolding.
