Highland hotel & retail ‘village’ planned for Tomatin
March 21 2018
Tomatin Trading Company are seeking to rekindle plans first granted by Highland Council in 2007 for the brownfield site but could finally open by autumn 2019 should planning be approved.
William Frame, managing director of Tomatin Trading Company, said: “I first bought the site in 2005 and believe this is now the right time to take forward our plans with the commitment of Transport Scotland to improve accessibility to the Highlands. The dualling of the A9 will include the stretch in close proximity to the site of the proposed development and the Highlands are an increasingly popular tourist destination.”
Architect Mark Fresson of Norr, added: “Our vision for the site is to create a cluster of memorable buildings appropriate to its spectacular Highland setting. The development will complement the surrounding landscape using a mix of traditional materials such as stone, timber and slate echoing its historic past while looking to the future”.
The destination aims to serve as a gateway for popular attractions such as the Cairngorms National Park, North Coast 500 and Loch Ness.
