Five-star Cameron House has given a first look at its new £2 million Cameron Clubhouse and Cafe Spa after the transformation of the Carrick Resort.
Grangemouth-based interior design firm Greyline Design is behind the phase one upgrade to the resort’s old Claret Jug restaurant, which retains the original stone fireplace and flagstone floor.
The Café Spa has been relocated to the same level as the Clubhouse and offers contemporary furnishings of colourful Scottish wools and soft leather. New windows maximise natural light offer stunning views.
Work is ongoing to restore the main Cameron House building, which was destroyed by a fire in December 2017 which claimed the lives of two guests. Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park granted planning application to demolish and replace parts of the building. Cameron House Hotel, The Leisure Club, The Great Scots bar and Cameron Grill are expected to reopen next year.
The resort on the western bank of Loch Lomond has various dining options, an 18-hole Championship golf course, award-winning spa and lodge facilities. The Clubhouse at Cameron will serve gastropub favourites, cocktails, wines, and beers. The refreshed Café Spa will serve contemporary dishes with a healthy focus.
Under phase two, the Cameron Club and Spa’s treatment rooms and spa facilities will be upgraded.
Resort director Andy Roger said: “This work represents the start of an exciting transformation of what was previously called the Carrick Resort into the Cameron Club and Spa.
“Relocating the Café Spa to the ground floor level has allowed us to increase capacity and transform the Spa arrival experience. All of this was completed with the utmost care to ensure any changes make the most of our stunning setting. We are excited to continue to plan the next phases of the overall project and look forward to welcome guests to the new Clubhouse and Café Spa.”
Architecture firm 3DReid and property consultants Amicus worked with Greyline Design to deliver the project.
Greyline Design’s Gavin Liddle said: “Our key aim for The Clubhouse at Cameron was to create a welcoming, characterful space with a laid-back feel. As well as a full renovation of the interior, the lighting has also been upgraded throughout to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere where guests can take a moment to sit back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Loch Lomond.
“As a stand-alone development, the Café Spa was an exciting clean sheet design opportunity. We mixed hard finishes such as grey parquet flooring with three-dimensional bronze mosaic and timber wall panelling, creating a calming space with warmth and character.”
