We've launched a public consultation exercise on the cultural significance of the Tinkers’ Heart monument in Argyll. Dr George Findlater, who is leading the consultation, said: “We are really keen to hear about any information people may have – no matter how trivial it may seem – regarding the Tinkers’ Heart.
