Entries are open for Scottish Heritage Angel Awards 2018 for groups and individuals who rescue, record and celebrate Scotland’s historic buildings and places.

Last year’s awards honoured a range of diverse projects across the country, from the restoration of the Grade A-listed former office of the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company in Govan, led by Govan Workspace, to the full-scale reconstruction of an Iron Age roundhouse in Dumfries and Galloway by the Whithorn Trust.

The awards scheme is open to groups, individuals, volunteers and professionals across Scotland, with entrants having until Friday June 29 to submit their nominations.

The eventual winners will be crowned at Glasgow City Chambers on Monday October 22.

Susan O’Connor, director of the Scottish Civic Trust, said: ‘The awards provide an important opportunity to recognise the positive difference that heritage projects make to local communities all over the country.’

The awards were started in 2014 and funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. They are run by the Scottish Civic Trust in partnership with Historic Environment Scotland and Archaeology Scotland.
