This is the view at that greeted Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) engineers at Glasgow Cathedral.

PTSG’s Electrical Services division was contracted to carry out testing on the building lightning protection system as part of the Carillion Historic Scotland portfolio.

Craig Finney, operations manager at PTSG, said: “We knew this contract would include working on some of Scotland’s most iconic buildings and provide some brilliant experiences for our engineers but the works at Glasgow Cathedral, as you can see from the photograph, have been breathtaking.”

PTSG was contracted by Historic Scotland via Carilion to carry out annual inspections and testing of lightning protection systems at 37 properties across the country as well as any remedial works needed.

All of the 37 locations are listed buildings, ranging from churches and cathedrals to castles and monuments. A full list of the sites is below.
