Restoration of Garrison House and Grounds

Lee Boyd Limited

This project is the complete restoration and rejuvenation of a Grade B Listed historic building, very much at the heart of the small community of Millport on the island of Cumbrae. The building was almost destroyed by fire in 2001, but despite this set back, the community maintained their passionate support for the project and were awarded considerable public funding of over £4 million. The resultant project was a combination of conservation and contemporary intervention to provide a mixed use public and visitor facility including museum, library, surgery and cafe.
