Niall Logan has been a keen amateur of vernacular architecture and its conservation for many years, and has restored – single-handed – his 18th-century farmhouse over 35 years. Although his first love was archaeology, he did not follow this as his career, but has now found his way back to it. He retired as Professor of Systematic Bacteriology at Glasgow Caledonian University in 2014 and promptly became the Chairman of the Scottish Vernacular Buildings Working Group. In 2013 he co-founded the Baldernock Local History Group, and he now devotes much of his time to the study of vernacular architecture, and to researching the local history of his parish.
