Castle to Cathedral to Cashmere
The Castle to Cathedral to Cashmere project aims to enhance the visitor experience of Elgin City Centre and Moray and provide greater access to local heritage whilst improving economic opportunities within the region.
Part of the project is a £4 Million + development of the Elgin Heritage Experience & Grant Lodge which will complement the works at the Cathedral by Historic Scotland. This will develop the corridor - from Ladyhill to the Cathedral and on towards Johnstons - and will include the introduction of interpretive signposts along the route and related development of Grant Lodge as an archive/family history centre, registrars and Visitor Information Service.
Running in tandem with this is a £3.3 Million project developing the Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS), which will allow for work to priority buildings, public realm works, historic shop front improvements and skills training. The aim of the scheme is to make grants available to property and shop owners who have properties within the CARS area of Elgin which have been identified as priority buildings and that require traditional building repairs.
