A visitors centre which will put Colzium estate firmly back on the tourist map is on course to be completed by the end of the month.

Construction of the the long-awaited £750,000 facility is now complete and only the interiors need to be seen to.

A fit-out of the new premises is now being undertaken and this will be open in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.

A spokesman for CultureNL said:“The refurbishment at Colzuim is well underway and is on schedule

“The audio visual installation is about to take place, and work will take place on the new café.”

It is hoped that the innovations will see Colzium added to must-see attractions in the Central Belt, including Falkirk Wheel and The Kelpies.

A grassroots group called Friends of Colzium has been formed to assist Culture NL in looking after this prized historical treasure in Kilsyth.
