The Mingary Castle restoration blog was written by Jon Haylett, who lives in the local village of Kilchoan. Now that restoration is almost complete Holly and Chris Bull will take over to report on bringing the Castle back to life.

Mark Thompson

I met Mark Thompson at the site today.  Mark is John-Paul Ashley's partner in the building firm which is doing the work at the castle, and he has every reason to be looking a little serious in this picture - he's just come up from another of Ashley-Thopmson's sites in the south of England where the sun was shining and the temperature 18C.  Here, if anything, conditions have worsened, with a gale through last night and some 20mm rain in the last twenty-four hours.  When Mark stepped outside for this picture, it was during one of the few breaks in the driving rain.

Mark's here to work with J-P on gearing up for a big push as soon as the weather breaks.  J-P's been away in Aberdeen organising accommodation, in the form of caravans, for the necessary increase in the workforce, but managing a job as big as this one means that we'll be seeing a lot more of Mark over the next few months.

Ashley-Thompson's website is here.
