Archaeology of the East Lomond Hillfort: losing our dear friend Dr Oliver O’Grady
We were all deeply saddened to learn about the sudden death of Oliver O’Grady. Oliver was the archaeologist for all three of our East Lomond Digs. He brought a joy and enthusiasm to the digs; everyone was welcome and his patience unending. A JustGiving page has been set up in his memory and all funds raised will help the Venture Trust a charity that supports young people who are struggling with life through outdoor-based development programmes.
Important information on metal detecting!!
Metal detecting on Falkland Estate without permission is forbidden. Anybody wishing to carry out metal detecting on Falkland Estate must seek permission from the Estate in advance. If permission is given, it will be in a designated area only. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse permission. Contact the office on 01337 858544 or email. Anyone carrying out metal detecting without permission will be reported to the police. Please note that much of the East Lomond summit is a scheduled ancient monument and as such, it is a serious criminal offence to detect in that area without permission. For more information, see Historic Environment Scotland guidance.
