Achara House - Duror. This Grade 2 Listed Lorimer-inspired house has had a summer of unplanned but very comprehensive fabric repairs. Now 2017 is upon us its time to start developing the building into a high end (albeit small) hotel. Extending the building is a delicate exercise as so many Scottish country houses have been ruined by conversions to hospitality use and we are being given a doubly tough brief that the conversion should be fully and easily refocused back to a modern country house if required. Highland Council seem happy with our initial proposal…so some speedy development work needed for a late January detailed planning submission..
