Client: Private Client.

Conversion and restoration of a derelict property in Lochranza, Isle of Arran, to a two bedroom holiday let cottage.  As this was widely acknowledged as one of the earliest recorded buildings on Arran, the client was keen to keep as much of the existing structure as possible, despite the condition.

A new structure, including new foundations, was formed within the existing walls, a course of stone was added on top to allow sufficient headroom on the ground floor and a stair was added to allow access to two new bedrooms in the roofspace.
