Tobermory activity hub to boost outdoor recreation
July 6 2022
Organic Architects have brought forward plans to develop waterfront land on the Aros waterfront near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, as an outdoor activity hub.
Tobermory Harbour Association purchased an old pier and slipway as well as a strip of woodland overlooking Tobermory Bay in 2019 with the aim of developing the land for the benefit of the community.
Intended to facilitate water sports and enjoyment of the broader Aros Estate the work will see a stone fish farm restored to its original character through removal of later extensions, a tin roof and render finish.
This would facilitate the creation of rooms for training and meetings as well as a café and public conveniences.
Organic Architects wrote: “The proposals are to retain the original stone building and highlight it as a feature on the site – extensions either side will be either timber clad or clad with a wriggly tin to contrast the stone walls.
“A new extension overlooking the pier will house a galley kitchen to complement the training and teaching room. At the eastern end a new extension provides changing facilities for the outdoor activities on offer.”
Separate moves to refurbish the pier will be the subject of a second phase of work.
Originally built as a sawmill the secluded structure is in an ideal spot for kayaking, paddleboarding and diving
