|SAVE OLD CASTLE
an unbroken line for close to 750 years old
castle lachlan takes us back
to the days of the Kingdoms of the Gael where in
Ireland, Western Scotland and the Isles our ancestors lived by the
two thousand year old clan values and communal culture of the Celts.
For this generation the goal of the Save Old Castle Lachlan Fund is to preserve old castle lachlan as an ancient Scottish structure of national importance and to preserve the history and heritage of the clan.
A feasibility study and conservation report on old castle lachlan by our sister Lachlan Trust in Scotland in conjunction with Historic Scotland has been completed; a project of this size will require to raise major funding in the £2.0 million range over the next 7 to 10 years. Old castle lachlan is part of the larger vision of preserving the heritage of a clan and developing the Strathlachlan area in Argyll as an "ancestral tourist" destination while respecting its natural beauty and historic importance.
By April 2013 we have been granted funds of £576,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland. Now we can protect the castle for further deterioration and we hope to start the work of preservation in the summer of 2013.
To secure future funding it is important that we sustain strong interest and financial support from the descendants of emigrant Scots.
