UK: Highland hotel Inverlochy Castle has announced plans to restore its listed stables and develop eight additional guest bedrooms.
Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI), which manages the castle hotel, will lead the renovation plans. When complete, it will take the total capacity of the castle to 35 rooms.
Work has already begun with a scheduled reopening to the public in April 2023.
The rooms overlook a walled garden which will also undergo restoration. The stables and garden sit close to the main castle building, located within a 500-acre estate.
Norbert Lieder, managing director of ICMI, said: “This ambitious project will see the listed castle stables and walled garden carefully restored to breathe new life into the estate grounds and provide an additional luxurious and unique space for guests to enjoy. We want everyone who steps inside to feel like they’re being welcomed into our home, and the designs retain as much original character as possible.
“The Scottish Highlands’ exceptional beauty and landscapes means there is extremely high demand for five-star accommodation within the region. The expansion designs pay homage to this historic landscape, and we look forward to unveiling the new bedrooms and garden when complete.”
ICMI manages several luxury independent properties across Scotland, including: Cromlix (Perthshire), Crossbasket Castle (Glasgow), Isle of Eriska Hotel & Spa (Oban), and more. Further information about the group can be found here.
