A two-day exhibition of the latest phase in the Mount Stuart Trust’s masterplan for the development of its empty properties on the island began on Monday.
The exhibition, being held at the award-winning Mount Stuart visitor centre, gives details of the three main projects in the second phase of the masterplan - five-star holiday accommodation at Woodend House on the west shore of Loch Fad, disabled-friendly holiday accommodation at Quien near Scalpsie, and a cluster of four new-build homes to be let as short assured tenancies at the former Ambrismore farm, also a short distance from Scalpsie Bay.
Present on the first day of the exhibition on Monday were Alistair McIntyre, the Mount Stuart Trust’s head of buildings and facilities; Craig Macdonald from quantity surveyors Brown and Wallace; Glenn Murray from project managers Gleeds Management Services; and Bernie Carr from building services consultants Atelier Ten.
Also among those present on Monday was Karen Nugent, from the project’s architects Page/Park, who gave details of the Ambrismore, Woodend and Quien proposals in a short video interview with The Buteman (apologies for the sound quality - you may need to turn up your volume control to the max!).
The exhibition continues at Mount Stuart’s visitor centre from 11am-6pm on Tuesday, August 5.
