Conditions on Site
Unst is breathtakingly beautiful and a fantastic place
to work, but excavating can present its own challenges...
The remote location of the site meant that
we only had intermittent reception on the mobile phones - so when it
was available, people made the most of it
We were excavating in August and September,
and in general we managed to avoid a lot of rain, but when it did come...
We did have a lot of mist, however...
...but our biggest problem, without
doubt, were the days when the midges came out - leading to extreme measures
to protect ourselves
