The Canal River Trust – Tender opportunity
November 4, 2020

National Trust for Scotland – Tender opportunity:

 

 

 

 

Opportunity to tender for the provision of concept interpretation design visuals for the creation of a visitor experience using interactive on-site interpretation, at Halligarth, Unst & Yell

 

Halligarth is a house and surrounding 2.2 hectare designed landscape on the island of Unst, part of the Shetland archipelago. Previously owned by a family of naturalists, doctors and writers, the site has potential to interpret the unique natural and cultural heritage of Unst and Shetland. The house and surrounding grounds came into Trust ownership in 1998 as part of a wider bequest of lands on Unst and Yell.

In February 2020 following a review of previous proposals, the Trust commissioned a revised Interpretation Strategy, which proposes the creation of a visitor experience using interactive on-site interpretation without permanent staff on site, combined with digital engagement online. This is an exciting and experimental proposition for the Trust and we would like to appoint a suitably qualified consultant to take the physical on-site elements and develop the concept further: creating a more detailed site layout, visualisations of the interpretive components, and providing indicative costs.
