Halligarth House, Unst

Client: Shetland Amenity Trust
Date: December 2018

Halligarth is a historic house and planned landscape situated in Baltasound in Unst, Shetland. The property includes the UK’s most northerly wood, planted by Dr Laurence Edmondston in the 1840s. It has been home to four generations of the Edmondston and Saxby families, who have made significant contributions to our understanding of Unst’s unique natural heritage. The property was gifted to the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) in 1998 and the donors wish is ‘to see the property conserved and the legacy of her family recognised and promoted’.

CMC, with their partners Abound Design, developed and delivered the Interpretation Master Plan utilising the themes identified in the Exhibition Development Plan, which will provide a clear visual presentation of where and how the themes will be told at the property. The Plan takes the reader through the visitor journey, utilising plans, graphics, photos and text as appropriate. In addition we produced an Activity Plan in accordance with the HLF Activity Plan Guidance to complement the Interpretation Plan.
