Plans lodged for Dornoch holiday apartments
March 22 201724 holiday apartments and four semi-detached cottages within the grounds of Dornoch’s Royal Golf Hotel.
Kirkwood Homes and Dornoch Developments propose to erect two apartment blocks positioned to maximize views across the surrounding landscape.
Adopting a more ‘classic approach’ than prior submissions the current scheme will make use of feature gables to all elevations finished in render with reconstituted stone detailing.
In their design statement the architects observed: “The concept for the elevational treatment was to create a simple, yet elegant architectural solution to respond to the grand and historic nature of the Royal Golf Hotel, the site and Dornoch.
“The feature gables showcase the living space within the apartments, with Juliette balconies to bring the outside in, and frame the views. Detailing in the form of quoins and a feature apron that runs around the perimeter of the buildings continue the traditional fee of the gables.
“The windows, French doors and white detailing emanate the traditional nature of the original part of the Royal Golf hotel and the historic settlement in the design.”
Four cottages will be located to the west bounded by a high stone wall.
