Muckrach Country House Hotel in the Scottish Highlands just north of Aviemore is an 11 bedroom Victorian Shooting Lodge set in 10 acres, surrounded by pastureland and a Scottish castle.
The historic shooting lodge has been totally refurbished from the bare bones of a soulless granite building into an opulent and lively hotel with a warm Highland welcome with quirky twists to the glamorous luxury and the latest technology.
After the initial meeting and taking of the design brief, listening to the hoteliers’ needs, Keith Clarke, Contract and Development Manager from Gallery Direct put together design layouts, mood boards and specifications to create the look and feel that was the clients vision. Subsequent meetings took place at the Gallery Direct Design Centre in High Wycombe and details were finalised.
Once the order was confirmed production drawings were completed and the bespoke pieces produced to go with the standard production pieces from the Gallery Collections. The experienced installation team delivered the products over a 2-day period. Training on furniture care was also given to the housekeeping staff so that everything can be kept in the best condition to make sure that the individual guest experience is always at the highest standard.
Phil and Ed Cowap, the new owners, said: “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Keith from Gallery Direct. His attention to detail and vast knowledge of the industry has been invaluable in the refurbishment process. Keith has helped us to create stunning and fabulous bedroom sets which create an immediate impression of luxury and charm.”
