Houghtons were appointed as main contractor for an interesting renovation project in the west coast of Scotland. Cul Na Shee, a Landmark Trust property is located in the small village of Saddell, Kintyre, about a 25 minute drive from Campbletown. The only access is through a narrow archway at Saddell Castle followed by a rough track, and finally a 60m walk along a picturesque gravel beach.
Whilst this makes for a lovey approach to the property it made delivery of materials to site a rather tricky process with large delivery trucks needing to be unloaded into a small van for the track before being carried by hand along the beach.
The trust had a bat survey completed as they were known to use the building, our bat specialist obtained a licence for work and carried it out in a manner so as not to disturb the bats. Peaceful new modern homes were provided by way of bat boxes located in the woodland.
