At Penicuik House these discoveries are being used to help the architects to make important decisions about how the ruin will finally be presented to the public.
The tour will begin at 1.30 in the Penicuik House Training Centre where a DVD will be shown to give an introduction to the project. Jenni will then lead a tour of the ruin lasting approximately 1 hour.
