Big changes at Cowane’s!! Following rigorous historical research and on the advice of our professional advisors, the Patrons have agreed that the Hospital will be finished in a warm “buff” colour limewash. A big change from its former white. This has been approved by conservation planners and Historic Environment Scotland. The clothing on the statue of John Cowane which is currently being conserved is to be painted in black and white which, following paint sample analysis and historical research, will reflect the costume of the period. We look forward to seeing the finished result!!
