Come on Eilean

SGB provided scaffolding to main contractor Morrison Construction for maintenance works at Scotland’s Eilean Donan Castle recently.

The spectacular 13th Century structure, situated on an island at the head of three sea lochs near Kintail on the West Coast, has provided the backdrop to many television and film productions.

SGB provided a combination of CUPLOK® system scaffold and traditional tube-and-fitting to allow access during repair work of the stone bridge that connects the Castle to the main land.

Erected alongside the bridge in the tidal estuary, the 55 m long, 2.6 m wide and 4 m high scaffold allowed Morrison to remove and re-build the stone parapet without obstructing the bridge.
