Arc Architects

The Isle of Bute is a wonderful island with diverse heritage interest. As part of the Discover Bute Landscape Partnership, Arc helped conserve several early monuments and archaeological sites.

Kilmichel and St Ninian’s are two early Christian sites with low standing remains of earth-mortared masonry chapels. Meikle Kilmorie is a similar castle remnant.

These vulnerable structures were carefully consolidated with clay mortar made specially from local materials, and protected with turf and seeded grass. Check out the video or read the paper.
