Why is this important?
The magnificent Galloway Viking Hoard, buried in the region’s soil 1,000 years ago for safekeeping, should have its home in Kirkcudbright’s new art gallery. We are calling on Fiona Hyslop to help make sure this happens. This would make Scotland’s 2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology something to celebrate.
