Go-ahead for Wester Ross bunkhouse

Post Thumbnail

Highland Council planners have granted permission for a bunk house on the site of a former brewery in Wester Ross-shire.

Applicants David and Wilma Orr, of  1 Camusnagaul, Dundonnell, are building their hostel to meet demand in the area for low-cost tourist accommodation.

They previously operated their An Teallach Ale Company brewery from the site.

The building will be close to the shores of Little Loch Broom.

It will be single storey, with a dark grey metal sheeting roof and solar panels, and the walls in vertical larch and grey metal sheeting.

It will have seven bedrooms, including one wheelchair accessible room with accessible en-suite shower room.

There will be communal sitting, dining and kitchen areas and a small sauna.

Heating will be via the solar panels and an air source heat pump.

The building will be below the level of the road and will have little effect on the view from the road.

The former brewery shed will be reduced in size to 50% of current footprint and used for refuse and recycling bins, and storage for a minimum of four bicycles and one motorbike.
