Niall has worked with some of Scotland and Northern Ireland’s leading conservation and design practices. In Edinburgh Niall is probably most closely associated with Charlotte Square having worked on groups of properties on all four sides of the Square. He has also been associated with the Artspace project at St Mark’s Castle Terrace. Recent projects completed include external repairs to Winton Castle, Pencaitland and to Hepburn Doocot for the Scottish Flag Trust.
