Skye attraction offers visitors food for thought
Dualchas Architects have authored a feasibility study into a new visitor exhibition, restaurant and shop on the Isle of Skye on behalf of Norwegian seafood firm Marine Harvest.

Intended to add to the pull of the island as a visitor destination the attraction will serve as a showcase for local produce and design.

In a statement Dualchas wrote: “The site itself creates challenges and opportunities being adjacent to the main road, other business and communities and within a wooded setting with no direct or distant view out.”

In light of these challenges Dualchas have taken inspiration from the surrounding woodland in their design, in order to advertise the attraction to passing motorists.

Marine Harvest is currently in process of building a £25m fish feed facility within Allt Anavig quarry, close to the proposed new visitor centre.

Skye is currently in the midst of a tourism boom with a new visitor centre planned at Torabhaig Distillery and a camping pod attraction on the outskirts of Portree.

The proposed centre will sit within established woodland

Is that a flock of birds or the actual size of the Skye midgies?
