Heritage volunteers from across Scotland gathered at Glasgow’s City Chambers last night (Monday 22nd October) as the winners of the fourth Scottish Heritage Angel Awards were revealed. Showcasing a range of diverse heritage projects across the country, three AHF clients were amongst the winners. These included:

· Kirkmichael Trust – for Best Heritage Research, Interpretation or Recording - involving the rescue and display of ornate medieval stone crosses of Kirkmichael and nearby Cullicudden.
The Scottish Heritage Angel Awards are delivered in partnership between the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, the Scottish Civic Trust, Historic Environment Scotland and Archaeology Scotland.
