Former Inverness psychiatric hospital to be converted into a 60 home development

Demolition work at the old Craig Dunain Hospital in Inverness in 2017.

Construction company Robertson Homes has extended its presence in Inverness with the launch of new developments in the city – including conversion of the city’s former psychiatric hospital.

The company is to build more than 180 new homes at locations at Ness Castle, Great Glen Heights and Great Glen Hall.

Ness Castle is an exclusive development of 96 executive three and four-bedroom terraced semi and detached homes, located at Mey Avenue on the outskirts of Inverness.

Great Glen Heights will consist of 32 high quality four-bedroom homes, located at the city’s Forrester’s Way,

And the firm has also announced plans to undertake a major conversion of the city’s former Craig Dunain Hospital.

The luxury development will feature a range of 60 one, two and three-bedroomed apartments and townhouses.

These new projects follow the launch last year of the Robertson Homes development at Great Glen View in Forester’s Way, Inverness, which will consist of 22 three bedroom semi-detached and terrace homes.

Sharon Spinelli, sales and marketing director at Robertson Homes, said: “When we launched Great Glen View towards the end of last year, we highlighted the fact we see Inverness very much as a priority location in the coming years.

“The response from homebuyers to that development has been fantastic, so we’re very excited to be launching this next tranche of high quality properties which reinforce our presence in such a beautiful part of the country.

“These new developments will feature stylish, spacious homes with innovative layouts which offer the perfect base for families and professionals.

“All of them offer the classic combination of access to some of the Highlands’ most stunning scenery and most popular outdoor activities as well as close proximity to a host of excellent amenities, schools and tourist attractions.”
