    how about 14"x12" frames and a broodbox + super fixed together with the super underneath

    Along those lines. But was thinking of tacking 2 broods together giving me a 22 frame long hive.

    I have the plans for Rob Dartington's long Deep hive somewhere I never got round to making one,
    You could borrow them if you like (and I can find them )

    Just had a conversation with someone from Inverewe Gardens where they plan to introduce bees. They were thinking of Glen Hives though I may have desuaded them because of the inner and outer size.

    But has anyone a Glen Hive to sell or loan to Inverewe?

    Anderson published plans and people modded them as they saw fit. I have seen "Glens" and owned a couple many years ago now which took 15 frames and 20 frames so they were built with what people had to hand and to suit their strain of bee.
