Five revived
Historic Scotland are to award nearly £1m of building repair grants to five endangered buildings including, Glasgow Art Club, the Royal Hospital Chapel at Gartnavel and 45 North Bridge Street.

The lion’s share of this largesse will be deposited at Abbotsford House in Melrose, the home of Sir Walter Scott, which will be recipient of £500k for a long term repairs programme.

Meanwhile the Royal Hospital Chapel will scoop £261k to remediate water damage and bring the structure back into use as a therapy centre for Gartnavel’s cancer patients.

John Entwistle , Chair of Glasgow Building Preservation Trust who are leading the project, said: “The chapel once restored will again become a good place to be providing naturally calming spaces where complementary therapies will be delivered along with advice and support. “
