Some of our earlier projects

The range of our projects is immense, from a single interpretive panel for a local pond to the entire concept and script for a nuclear plant. In between are abbeys and museums, castles and industrial sites, abandoned villages and major landscape areas.

As sole consultants, or with other practices, we have undertaken feasibility studies and interpretive strategies for Blairs Museum in Aberdeen, the Brecks area of Norfolk, Coed-y-Brenin Forest in Snowdonia, Craigmillar Castle Park in Edinburgh, Duff House in Banff, The Mither Kirk of St Nicholas in Aberdeen, Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site, Harewood House in Yorkshire, Inverlochy Castle in Fort William, an oil interpretation centre in Shetland, Middleton-in-Teesdale, Mull and Iona, Townlands Barn in Cromarty, The National Trust’s countryside properties in Wessex, a smoked salmon outlet, Surgeon’s Hall in Edinburgh and Culbin Forest in Moray.

With Aaron Lawton and Jo Scott, we prepared a highly-imaginative interpretive master plan for the Lochwinnoch area, including Castle Semple Loch and the RSPB Nature Reserve, to link in with the local paths network. One of our proposals was for 'lookooteries' from which visitors could watch the natural and human activity on and around the Loch.

With Ross Associates, we contributed to LDN Architects' plans for the re-vamping of Tomintoul's Museum and TIC, and we prepared an interpretation plan for the Isle of Mull's Sea Life Centre for which QuiteWrite provided the exhibition script. We wrote storylines for Maryhill on the Forth and Clyde Canal and for the Crinan Canal, and the exhibition script for the Cornalees Visitor Centre at the head of the Greenock Cut.

We have written exhibition scripts and publication text for many clients including British Waterways, English Heritage, the Forestry Commission, Scottish Natural Heritage, The National Trust and other non-profit bodies, many local authorities, development agencies and private enterprises. More detail is given on our QuiteWrite site.

We have won interpretive awards for the Seallam! Heritage Centre on Harris and for work at a number of other sites.
