We run an annual programme of events consisting of training and projects during the months of March to October. The training courses are for beginners and are very popular. These are held at our training base at Kilsyth, which also provides for more challenging training in dry stone walling for the more experienced, during our season. We are particularly keen on community projects which can provide variety in dry stone work and give our members the necessary skills and experience to tackle more demanding builds, such as arches and bridges.
We have developed quite a seasoned reputation in the field of dry stone walling over the years and a significant portfolio of projects are now dotted around our area. We have a strong sense of the environment in our work; dry stone walls have lasted for over two hundred years and provide essential shelter to flora and fauna, notwithstanding livestock in fields. These walls are part of the heritage of Scotland and we are determined to play our part in maintaining this element of history. As part of this belief, we maintain close links with the township museum at Auchindrain near Inverary, Kilmartin Museum, the Clanranald Society and the Island of Bute Regeneration Scheme.
