Isle of Eriska Hotel
Spa and Restaurant Extension
The existing spa and restaurant facilities are currently located within a building situated remote from the five star hotel on the Island of Eriska.
As part of the continuing investment in the property, the existing spa and leisure facilities have now been extended and upgraded. These facilities, although located separately from the main Hotel remain an integral part of the present operation.
The extended spa fulfils a need established by the hotel operation to upgrade the quality of the existing provision and create: additional treatment rooms; an enlarged gymnasium; improved golfer’s changing facilities; and enhanced bar and restaurant catering.
The two-storey extension was designed to be of a similar scale and character to the former stables building and external materials comprise principally white render and horizontal timber cladding. A new extended timber and glass balcony is accessed via sliding glazed
screens that form the external restaurant wall, overlooking the Island’s golf course, Loch Creran and the Morvern hills.
A principal feature of the extended building is a new, standing seam, pitched roof that offers a single unifying element to the new golf course elevation. One side of the new pitched roof incorporates aluminium roof glazing over the new extended restaurant and the other will be able to accommodate PV solar panels.
An existing pellet fed biomass boiler heats the spa facility, and this will be upgraded to serve the enlarged building footprint. The new areas of wall and solid roofing are insulated to better than current building regulation performance requirements and glazed elements utilise high performance low-E double-glazing. The introduction of PV Solar panels will make a significant contribution to offset the buildings lighting and power load.
