This Month’s mixed bag

This month see us neck deep in planning applications and building warrants to enable all of our 2018 projects to have a hope of getting started. A bit early to be making Christmas wishes, but all i want for Christmas is: “Better resourced local authorities to allow projects to go through the statutory approvals process much more quickly” - I’ll get that letter off to Lapland next week sometime…

Covers come off…slowly

Monachyle Beag is now careering towards its completion - its hard to keep track of all the progress until big steps are taken; such as the removal of the scaffolding. With the outer cladding and sedum roof in place the building now looks like the CGIs (which may seem an odd thing to say but trust me, it’s always a relief when that happens). The magic Sioo wood treatment is doing its stuff and the outer layer is silvering up pretty quickly. First impressions with the scaffold off seem to be good, however the very thin steel columns our engineer worked so hard on really are very thin! 


West Dullatur Lodges submitted for planning - its a small development of lodges/bothies/huts within a plot of Ancient Woodland on the shores of Loch Venachar in the Trossachs. This development is one of a number we are currently working on to feed the rising demand for short duration getaways to remote locations in the Highlands.  the site is an area of formerly clearfelled Ancient Woodland that the development seeks to manage and reinstate with native planting. The lodges have a small footprint, immense views accross Loch Venachar to Ben Ledi and they have plenty of the little luxuries that the market seems to be demanding. Looking forward to building these!
