Lews Castle construction works

Anyone know why they are marking out areas to the back of the Castle?

There's people in day-glow jackets and hard hats, and a digger in situ, along with a specialist team (?) from the mainland, whose name I couldn't quite read from the side of thier pick-up.

Any information gratefully received.

See http://www.hebrides-news.com/lews-castle-11411.html where it says "Site investigations will be undertaken during the last week of April involving test drilling and excavations in the area immediately around the castle."

Apparently Angus Campbell thinks there's oil under the Castle and has authorised Tech Services to commence drilling operations....

Phase one I think is remedial works to stablise parts of structure. Parts of the back wings are in seriously bad condition... - some wings need to be taken down and built back up again - timber is so rotten. The areas with Iron girders are in bad nick too with the corrosion. 5 years ago the CNES authorised to stop heating the building during winter which has accelerated damage to the building....
