AN installation telling the story of the Declaration of Arbroath is to be created as part of an investment into a National Trust site in Angus.

The conservation charity announced plans to invest over £700,000 into the House of Dun near Montrose. The investment will completely re-purpose the property – which encompasses the Montrose Basin Nature Reserve – as a historical park for Angus which tells the story of the county, the people and the landscape.

It will also feature a special installation which explains Angus’s role in the “birth” of Scotland as we know it through the Declaration of Arbroath 700 years ago.

The National Trust for Scotland’s chief executive, Simon Skinner, said: “This is a transformational investment that will offer a rich experience for people of all ages.” He added: “Our aim is to not just to make history relevant but to have it come to life for visitors.”
