Gareth Hoskins picks up biggest ever Scottish lottery grant

Gareth Hoskins' plans for a complete overhaul of the Royal Museum in Edinburgh has won Scotland's biggest ever lottery grant.

The Heritage Lottery fund has pledged £16.8 million towards the £44 million scheme, which will completely revamp the Grade A-listed museum in the centre of the historic city.

Proposals for the project involve a series of major work on the complex, together with proposals for the entire redisplay of the Museum's internationally renowned collections, to be phased over the next 15 years.

Hoskins won a place in the AJ's 40 under 40 competition last month (16.06.05).
