Our Projects > ArdgartAn Hotel, ArdgartAn, Loch Long

Ardgarten Youth Hostel The former Ardgartan SYHA Youth Hostel sits on the peninsula of land before Glencoe on the banks of Loch Long, Arrochar.

The original Ardgartan House was demolished in the sixties when the new Youth Hostel was built. This opened in 1969 and operated until 1998, then finally becoming abandoned in 2002 during the cutbacks imposed by the SYH.

Plans are currently in progress to build a 124 bedroom hotel on the site along with associated buildings. Since this involves a change of use for the land, BRS were called to help out with the various analyses required to ensure the new building would be fully compliant.

During the planning process, BRS provided a range of services to the client including SBEM calculations, U Value calculations and Energy Performance Certificates.
