Fasque House bridal suite named Aberdeenshire’s best conservation project
The Apple House, a B-listed property dating back to 1792, has been voted best conservation project by the Aberdeen Society of Architects.

Designed by @rchitects the estate building at Fasque in Fettercairn has been rescued from a state of ruin to form a new bridal suite for weddings conducted in Fasque House.

The home and grounds are in process of a £3m renovation programme which will restore the main house and 19 separate outbuildings to their former glory.

Paul Fretwell from @rchitects Scotland Ltd said: “The Apple House is an outstanding building in a unique setting with significant history and cultural value.”

 “Garden buildings of this type are few and far between so it is hugely important that we have secured its long term future by provided the building with a use, particularly on a commercial basis.”

The 370 acre estate is owned by Douglas and Heather Dick Reid who recently obtained approval from Aberdeenshire Council to proceed with a £55m development of 115 homes and commercial units within the grounds.
