The Inn at John O' Groats

GLM

The Inn at John O' Groats - a Victorian Baronial hotel which had become hidden beneath years of accretions and left to rot at this once-popular holiday destination - has been dramatically restored and revitalised by GLM. Removing various extensions to expose its original iconic form and adding a Nordic inspired coloured timber clad extension housing holiday apartments has provided a splash of vibrancy against a sometimes bleak landscape. Producing a contemporary reinterpretation of the vernacular, the Inn at John O' Groats sits amongst 23 luxury holiday residences, a cafe, shop and activities hub developed at the same time.
