Hotel restoration

The owners of Cameron House Hotel have submitted a formal application to carry out restoration work on the building following last year’s fatal fire.

A planning statement reveals the full extent of the works which are required at the Loch Lomondside hotel. It includes the retention and restoration of the façade and the construction of a new internal frame within the building.

It is almost a year since the blaze at the hotel which claimed the lives of Richard Dyson and Simon Midgley on Monday, December 18, 2017.

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority’s planning department is expected to issue a decision by Christmas.
