Tomatin hotel and retail court to cater for A9 travellers

Highland Council has given its approval to a £10m hotel and associated retail and food court off the Tomatin junction of the A9.

The green light enables delivery of a 99-bed hotel alongside a farm shop and 200 seat restaurant in addition to a drive through bakery, four shops and a petrol filling station.

Councillor Duncan Macpherson commented: “The development at Tomatin is a welcome addition to the Highland hospitality offering and will create full-time, part-time and managerial jobs in both retail and hospitality. It will fit perfectly with the new dualling of the A9 from Perth to Inverness and be a welcome stop for travelers on the A9 going both North and South.”

The mixed-use development is to be built by Tomatin Trading Company and Norr Architects on the site of the former Freeburn Hotel, demolished in 2008.

"Our design's a bit mince isn't it"?
"Yeah it's not going to go down well..."
"We should really look at a major redesi-"
Nah, just put an E-Type in the render."
"Genius! That'll solve everything!"
"But make it look half-hearted. We don't want anyone to think we tried."

“That still looks mince.”
“What will we do?”
“Put another one in the pic?”
“Ok...like this?”
“That’s it. Publish. Fag break?”

Wow. Is Tomatin trying to steal the Architorture crown from Aberdeen?

Surely Norr haven't designed this? Their latest school was great. This looks old and outdated, but it isn't even on site yet. Nothing about this image says anything about the Highlands, as a place.

- pixelated sky? chemtrails.
- massive trash compartments in-your-face? ecology/recycling
- dead windows? matte glass with lastet Paris-chis black curtains
- static e-type with wheels spinning? reverse car marketing
- random shadow directions? power of Earth spinning
- shadowy lady in the sunshine? no real answer to that

...and so on. What a cheap piece of cr*p.
