Heritage Signage at Dunstaffnage Castle

The new signs at sites managed by CADW, English Heritage and Historic Scotland include graphics and information panels, and each has adopted the corporate identity of its heritage organisation. But I wonder if part of the heritage of heritage sites is being lost as the “old” cast signs there were in use from the eras of the Ministry of Public Buildings and Works (MPBW) and the Department of Environment are replaced. Are they documented? Are they being deposited in a store?

So it is good to see some of the older signs still on show at some of the more remote heritage sites.
