Re: Re: Rock of Cashel stone conservation restoration
Gunter: thanks for that; aye, there was indeed a great stooshie (rumpus) over Stirling Castle, mainly because the Great Hall was fully restored and paintedbright yellow (!) – to say that it acts like a beacon over the floodplain of the Forth is putting it mildly. Stirling Castle, magnificent as it is, glowers over its surroundings; it is not a bright building, so painful thumbs come to mind. Still, it’s done and I’ve not heard much about it recently.
These various charters and protocols strike me as dogma masquerading as good practice; the agenda is normally hijacked by a few enthusuaists who lay down the rules and then cry foul when they are not adhered to.
Still, all fashion passes and who knows what will be the convention in a few years’ time.
