Plans have been approved for a number of new homes to be built in Inverness as part of a new ‘prestigious’ housing development.

The application has outlined over 30 new homes, as well as restoration of a 132-year-old mansion designed by Sir Alexander Ross, to be built off Stratherrick Road in Lochardil.

The work will be undertaken by property developer Tulloch Homes, who will begin construction in March.

The Drummond Hill development will be made up six executive homes, six mews houses, six town houses and 12 apartments, in addition to the conversion of the mansion which will be turned into luxury apartments.

Sandy Grant, managing director of Tulloch Homes, said: “We see Drummond Hill as a special opportunity, especially given the mansion’s history.

“For half a century it had been used as offices and, along with the Gatehouse Lodge, we’ll offer these iconic buildings a new era of being lived in again.

“We won recognition from Historic Scotland for our refurbishment of another historic mansion, Hedgefield House, in the city several years ago and the experience gained there will benefit our sympathetic conversion of this building in to six stylish apartments.”

“The local housing market remains extremely buoyant and we’re looking forward to making a start at Drummond Hill.”
