Green light for new apartments and affordable cottages at Dornoch golf hotel

Dornoch-Overall 3Plans have been approved for the construction of twenty four apartments and four affordable cottages within the grounds of Dornoch’s Royal Golf Hotel.

Working alongside Dornoch Development Ltd and Lippe Architects, Kirkwood Homes is to deliver two apartment blocks each housing twelve, two bedroom apartments as well as the cottages.

The new flats will be for open market sale as opposed to a previous proposal on site, which involved a high degree of management by the hotel for their holiday use.

Dornoch-OverallThere will be two blocks of three-storey apartments which will be modern in design with traditional stonework on the outside.

The two-bedroom apartments will be finished to high standards, complete with en-suite, bathroom, kitchen, utility and living/dining room area.

There will be another two blocks of two, semi-detached cottages on the site of a former tennis court across the road.

Dornoch-Overall 2Colin Crombie, managing director of Kirkwood Homes, said: “Dornoch is one of the most unique, beautiful and historic towns in Scotland and we have worked closely with the planning authority to ensure the development is of stunning quality to complement its surroundings.

“Last year we launched our first development in the Highland region and this application pays testament to our long-term commitment to this area as we continue to expand our offering across Scotland.”

Construction is due to start next month with the first completions expected in summer 2018.
