A Carnoustie-based architect’s studio is ready to take the next step in developing one of the biggest holiday resorts in the North-east.

Brunton Design Studio’s plans for the 27-acre site near Fettercairn will include landscaped grounds with private fishing, a restaurant and retail units.

The lodges will be available for holiday rental and for sale as holiday homes.

Allan Mudie, of Brunton Design, said: “We are looking at a high-end development, along the same lines as Forbes of Kingennie near Carnoustie.

‘‘Aberdeenshire Council has been very supportive as has the neighbouring farmer. We have had full discussions with him as the current road to the farm cuts across the proposed development. However, we are going to create a new road which will give even better access.

“The development is within half an hour’s drive of the new Jack Nicklaus course being built at the Ury estate near Stonehaven and we anticipate interest in this luxury accommodation, both rental and sales, from overseas visitors. And with stay-at-home holidays becoming ever more popular we are confident there will also be very high demand from the home market.”
