Inveraray Castle

GLM

The magnificent state rooms of the castle are open to the public but a considerable portion of the building is a private residence. The client wanted to convert the attic floor into use as a family accommodation incorporating a new staircase as well as creating nine bathrooms, an additional kitchen and a comprehensive upgrade to the main kitchen. Lacking a central heating system, it was also vital to design a building to house the new woodchip boiler connected by an underground heating main 400m from the castle. Great care was required in the installation of services into this exceptional building.
