The course, which will be held at Historic Environment Scotland’s Duff House , Banff, will incorporate presentations by a range of leading authorities from throughout the UK with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the various aspects of this critically important subject – including, amongst others, Alex Hill, former Chief Advisor for The Met Office, Scotland; Professor Desmond Thompson, Principal Advisor on Science, Scottish National Heritage; Jeremy Blake, Senior Partner and Head of Sustainability at leading London Architects Purcell UK and representatives of Historic Environment Scotland’s Technical Research and Climate Change Team.
