The Mystery of Merlin

27 March 2017

A project aiming to establish a Merlin Trail linking early Dark Age sites in Dumfries and Galloway and Upper Tweedale will have a highlighted presence in the region thanks to support from the Infinis Glenkerie Community Fund.

The award to The Arthur Trail Association, is to help fund the erection of information boards on four sites in Upper Tweeddale as well as contributing towards the costs of the website, which will link digital content to the information Boards. The Boards will be located at Drumelzier, Stobo, and what is believed to be the location of Merlin’s grave.

Robin Crichton, The Arthur Trail Association said, “This project throws light on a Dark Age, a little known yet dynamic and dramatic period when Scotland was just beginning to be formed. The story of Merlin is of world-wide fascination and should greatly benefit cultural tourism in the area.”

Other awards in this round include, Biggar Institute to complete the construction of toilet cubicles, including a fully accessible toilet and Broughton and District Bowling Club towards the replacement of their roof.

Launched in 2014, Infinis Glenkerie Wind Farm Community Fund supports groups and small charities within a 15 km radius of the Glenkerie Wind Farm, which includes parts of Scottish Borders and South Lanarkshire.

A funding pot of at least £57,200 per year (rising in line with inflation) is available for the operating life of the Glenkerie Wind Farm, expected to be 25 years. The fund has been provided by Infinis, the developer and operator of the wind farm.

The next round of funding closes for applications on Monday 26th June 2017. Grant application forms are available to download at
