Wednesday 15 th October:
'Conservation in the National Trust for Scotland: an overview'
Peter Burman, Director of Conservation and Property Services, NTS
New to the Trust, but not to conservation, Peter Burman celebrates some recent achievements and highlights
some of the challenges across the work of The Trust.

Wednesday 29 th October:
'Managing to understand: the Ben Lawers Historic Landscape Project'
Derek Alexander, Archaeologist, NTS West Region
Ben Lawers on North Lochtayside is best known for its importance as a National Nature Reserve, with its
excellent range of Alpine flora, however the area also displays extensive evidence of human activity
stretching back into prehistory. The Trust is currently undertaking a major project to gain a better
understanding of how this landscape developed over time. The Ben Lawers Historic Landscape Project is an
ambitious undertaking supported by major grants from HLF, HS and SNH and focuses on the post-medieval
farming remains. The aim is, through a range of specialist research, coupled with a great deal of volunteer
input, to not only reveal the history but to formulate management regimes that will promote and preserve
aspects of the current landscape for future generations.

Wednesday 12 th November:
'Garden Conservation in the Trust's West Region: growing with plants'
Ann Steele, Gardens Adviser, NTS West Region
From the grandeur of the important historic designed landscapes of Culzean Castle and Brodick Castle, via
the internationally significant plant collections at Arduaine and Crarae Gardens, to the domestic-scale
gardens of Weaver's Cottage and Wester Kittochside Farm, the Trust's West Region has them all. As
custodian to an increasingly complex range of plants, gardens and landscapes, the Trust is evolving its
approach to conserving these special places and their plant collections for current and future generations to
enjoy.

Wednesday 26 th November:
'Countryside action in the Trust: the Culzean estate as an exemplar of good practice'
Gordon Riddle, Property Manager, Culzean Castle and Country Park
Culzean Castle and Country Park is probably the National Trust for Scotland's most diverse property. Five
kilometres of spectacular coastline provide the perfect setting for Robert Adam's masterpiece and nearly all
the components of the old estate are intact. The conservation of the designed landscape involves many
disciplines and integrating wildlife, garden, landscape and architectural projects is a great challenge,
especially when 200,000 visitors are welcomed annually.
This lecture coincides with National Maintenance Week, an initiative organised by the Society for the
Protection of Ancient Buildings and supported by the National Trust for Scotland. For further information on
events throughout the week visit www.maintainyourbuilding.org.uk.

Wednesday 10 th December:
Wester Kittochside farm and the Museum of Scottish Country Life'
Philip Schreiber, Conservation Manager, NTS West Region
Kittochside is the result of a unique collaboration between the Trust and the National Museums of Scotland.
This lecture tells the story of the 10 years it took from the gift of the farm to NTS through conservation
planning, fundraising, architectural competition and construction to the establishment and operation of the
Museum.
