Revealed: Strictly luxurious ballroom overlooking Loch Lomond

New extension has been approved two years after fire ravaged historic hotel building.

The first images of a new £17.5m extension at the five-star Cameron House resort have been released.

The building containing a brand-new ballroom and 68 bedrooms, which has just been given approval by the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority, is expected to be complete by the summer of 2021.

With capacity for up to 400 guests, the 7345 sq ft ballroom will have views of Loch Lomond.

Many of the new bedrooms on the upper three floors will also have large balconies with loch-facing views.

A large outdoor terrace on the lower ground floor will create a separate, external space for smaller events.

Meanwhile, Cameron House Hotel is expected to reopen later this year following restoration.

In December 2017, two guests died when the historic building was ravaged by fire.

Plans for the separate extension had been in the pipeline prior to the tragic blaze.

The 7,345 square foot ballroom will have spectacular views of Loch Lomond.

Andy Roger, resort director at Cameron House, said: “We warmly welcome the National Park Authority’s planning approval, which is a major step forward in the multi-million-pound redevelopment of the hotel.

“The proposed extension will maximise the stunning views of Loch Lomond whilst fully respecting the architectural integrity of the original house.

“The plans include a new loch-facing ballroom and 68 bedrooms, which will adjoin the hotel’s existing leisure wing. 

“This will bring the resort’s total offering to 208 bedrooms, including 28 spectacular suites.

New bedrooms will have balconies overlooking the loch.

“The extension will also allow us to increase the number of weddings, functions and guests we’re able to accommodate at Cameron House, and we’re confident these improvements will have a significant positive impact on the local economy.”
