Brae­mar Cas­tle has se­cured an ini­tial con­tri­bu­tion of up to £100,000 de­vel­op­ment fund­ing from The Na­tional Lot­tery. The fund­ing will help progress pro­pos­als to ap­ply for a full Her­itage Lot­tery Fund grant at a later date, as part of a £1.6m ‘Rais­ing the Stan­dard’ project to make the cas­tle fit for pur­pose in the long term. The project aims to carry out es­sen­tial con­ser­va­tion work to se­cure the cas­tle’s phys­i­cal fu­ture, in­clud­ing the re­newal of the build­ing’s har­ling and up­graded in­te­ri­ors fea­tur­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion space, but also to en­gage a broader spec­trum of peo­ple with the com­mu­nity project.
