Perthshire estate eyes a bigger slice of the leisure economy
May 24 2023
A bid by a Perthshire estate to better cater for the burgeoning outdoor market has taken a fresh turn with the submission of a revised masterplan.
Murrayshall Country Estate near Scone proposes a £30m expansion of leisure facilities and guest accommodation to provide a dedicated spa building and lodges.
Removing a residential component, which had been considered necessary to help fund the expansion, the latest plans by Fergus Purdie Architects fall back on the core business as part of a diversification strategy to augment the main hotel.
A natural timber and glass leisure facility will lead the changes, with 19 timber-clad lodges rising on the grounds. Outdoor activities will also be introduced including high-wire forest ropes and a zip line.
Construction is expected to commence by the middle of next year for completion by late 2027.
