Mews-style serviced apartments address Inverness visitor demand

HRI Munro Architecture has brought forward revised plans for eight mews-style serviced apartments in Inverness, a response to the growing demand for short-term accommodation in the Highland capital.

A growing tourism sector and business need had spurred proposals for 16 serviced apartments at Ross House, a detached Victorian house within the central conservation area, but this was dismissed on the grounds of posing a detrimental impact to the conservation area.

The latest scheme takes the form of a low-level brick terrace with external stairs breaking up the elevation to form semi-private courtyards to the rear of the existing property.

Partially obscured behind a stone wall the properties will include glazed balconies and perforated privacy screens with high-level clerestory glazing bringing light to the rear while maintaining privacy for neighbours.

A growing focus on tourism has seen LDN appointed to transform Inverness Castle into a visitor hub.

Buy one of these, and on a 140'' telly, you can watch whoever might be watching telly.
Do I even care any more?
