Scottish Borders castle secures future

Thirlestane Castle in the Scottish Borders has secured £150,000 of funding to help secure its future.

The 16th century home was forced to close in 2012 following an outbreak of dry rot, which spread through the building.

Since then, the owners have been working on a sustainable business plan to reopen it to visitors and keep it open for generations to come.

It's got so much history to it, and I am probably very biased, but I love it. Every day I come here, it sort of puts a grin on my face and I enjoy walking around it as much as anyone else.

"The more people that can experience what I have experienced, I really want to encourage and this funding is giving us a great opportunity to be able to invest more into this building and turn this place into more of a destination and hopefully make it financially sustainable at the same time."

– EDWARD MAITLAND-CAREW, THIRLESTANE CASTLE
