Throughout 2020, I worked closely with the Caithness Broch Project team to develop a set of computer visualisations of their replica iron age broch design, which they aim to construct in this northernmost region of the Scottish mainland. These visualisations show what the replica broch design might look like, set within a generic landscape. The project's aim is to build the full-scale replica broch using traditional techniques and to create a permanent visitor attraction in Caithness, including a dry-stone workshop. The challenge is to build the broch as authentically as possible, yet maintain compliance with modern building regulations. When planning permission is eventually granted, this will be the first broch to be built in Scotland in almost two thousand years.
