Loch-side terrace planned as Cameron House renovation continues
Phase two of the refurbishment, due to be completed in May 2017, has commenced at the loch-side retreat and will feature a brand new outdoor terrace to showcase panoramic views from the hotel across Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
A redesign of the hotel’s bedrooms is also underway.
Appointed to manage the design and build of the new terrace, architecture firm 3DReid said the project will act as both an alfresco bar area and an outdoor events space and has been designed with material choices and intricate detailing to enhance the existing building at the resort and make the most of the setting.
Frameless glass balustrading to the terrace will ensure views are maximised, with a covered timber deck creating a warmth to the space both from within and when viewed from the surrounding areas. The existing glazing will also be replaced, with doors opening out on the terrace and larger expanses of glass introduced, giving a minimal, contemporary feel.
Phase two of the refurbishment will see Cameron House invest a further £1 million into the resort, following a £3m investment as part of phase one which focussed on revamping the food and beverage offering, including The Cameron Grill and new cocktail bar, along with the hotel’s other public spaces.
Resort director Andy Roger said: “We are continuing to invest in Cameron House and are committed to making it the ultimate luxury destination in Scotland. We are truly privileged to have a unique setting that boasts such an abundance of natural beauty. The terrace will bring an exciting new dimension to our offering, with guests able to relax outdoors and take in the stunning panorama.”
The new terrace will accommodate 60 seated or 120 standing and access will be through the Great Scots Bar or via a staircase at the front of the hotel.
Jen Samuel, associate director at 3DReid, added: “The Great Scots Bar has one of the finest views in Scotland, overlooking Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The addition of the terrace allows a greater connection to the great outdoors while expanding the guests experience of the hotel, allowing anything from a Champagne reception in the sun to a warming whisky amongst the snow.”
