Nairn Bandstand - partial renovation is completed

I'm pleased to say that the urgent partial repairs to the Wallace Bandstand in Nairn have now been completed and the scaffolding removed (about half an hour ago). There is still some renovation work to be done - deocrative features on the 'pineapple' cupola need repair, as does the wrought iron balustrade - but at least the lead roofing has been made good and the inner wooden lining has been patched up. It no longer looks a complete eyesore (important for me, as it's what I see every day from my home, to be purely selfish about it):
