Two members of our team recently visited the site for an exciting new project on the Isle of Arran in Scotland. The site, comprising 600 acres of land, will be a multi-purpose event location incorporating an on-going re-wilding project. The ambitious scheme will ultimately provide a variety of workshops, foraging and cookery, a restaurant and distillery, and opportunities for walks and exploring the stunning landscape.
The site currently consists of a farmhouse and associated barns which will be sensitively renovated to provide accommodation and spaces for the workshops and events. There are plans to include a kitchen garden and greenhouse, with the aim of creating a closed-loop agricultural system and as much energy as possible being produced on site through hydro, solar and re-using the surplus heat from the distilling process to heat outdoor baths and a sauna.
