Cameron House unveils £2m clubhouse upgrade as hotel remains closed

Cameron House has revealed the results of a £2m upgrade to its clubhouse and spa, while the main hotel will remain closed until early 2020 following a fire at the property 18 months ago.

Two guests died after a blaze broke out at the 136-bedroom, five-AA-star hotel on Loch Lomond in West Dunbartonshire on 18 December 2017. The building was extensively damaged just months after the completion of a £4m refurbishment project.

A Crown Office spokesman said: “The Crown‎ is committed to ensuring that the facts and circumstances surrounding the deaths of Simon Midgley and Richard Dyson are thoroughly investigated by the relevant agencies, fully considered by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) and, in due course, aired in an appropriate legal forum. The nearest relatives will continue to be kept updated in relation to any significant developments.”

The hotel, leisure club, Great Scots bar and Cameron Grill remain closed; however the nearby Carrick Resort which houses the clubhouse and spa was undamaged by the fire.

The refurbishment is the first stage of the transformation of Carrick Resort into the Cameron Club and Spa; phase two will see the treatment rooms and spa facilities upgraded.

Led by Scottish interior design firm Greyline Design, the initial six-week modernisation project has upgraded the resort’s Clubhouse and Café Spa, revamping the interior and food and drink offering.

Previously known as the Claret Jug restaurant, the renamed Clubhouse at Cameron has been fully renovated and will now serve traditional gastropub food; while the Café Spa has been relocated to the same level as the Clubhouse to increase capacity.

Resort director Andy Roger said: “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.”

Greyline Design’s Gavin Liddle added: “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.”

Architecture firm 3DReid and property consultancy Amicus worked alongside Greyline Design to deliver the project.
