It’s been a big last 12 months for the caves. Starting with the installation of the all-weather path, it ended with the installation of the gates that will protect the precious Pictish carvings at night. We got grants for that work, but everything else we do relies entirely on volunteers and donations. We want to take the next steps towards the caves not just paying their own way but providing local employment. To do that, there are more improvements that need to be made so we’ve launched a one-off £10,000 fundraising appeal. You can read all about how we’ll spend it on our fundraiser page. We know that there’s not a lot of spare cash out there right now but every little bit will help us do more to preserve, celebrate and study a unique place in the history of Fife and Scotland.
