- Category: Buchlyvie Wild-life Garden
In June 2008, twenty-five dykers from the Scottish Branches of the Drystone Walling Association built an outdoor waiting room and medicinal herb garden. The drystone circular double walled structure was inspired by the Buchlyvie broch and developed from this basic plan.
The Broch was planted with medicinal plants chosen by our local herbalist and planted by the children.
Irwin Campbell had been the main driving force in the production of the Broch In 2010 he spent a lot of time making steps between two giant stones, to create a path leading up to the football pitch.In the spring of 2010, numerous trays of hedgerow wildflower seeds were sown and these were planted out around this path in the autumn.
