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
