The Scottish Lime Centre Trust promotes the knowledge and traditional skills required for the conservation, repair and maintenance of the historic built environment. We work nationally and internationally to provide advice, guidance and traditional skills training for anyone dealing with a historic structure, be it an A-listed castle or a garden wall.
