Type of works: supply of Accoya modified timber from Vincent Timber.
Situated on the southern shores of Loch Lomond, the prestigious De Vere Cameron House hotel is one of Scotlands premier hotel destinations. The 5 star hotel, a historic ancestral house, sits within 100 acres of magnificent, unspoilt parkland providing a stunning backdrop to any stay.
Famed for its fine dining, the hotel has expanded its reputation with the launch of The Boathouse restaurant. Located on the waters edge, it is perfect for relaxing while taking in the breathtaking panoramic views and watching life on the loch pass by. The Boathouse required a highly durable and stable cladding finish that echoed the natural beauty of its surroundings and would stand the test of time. As a key attraction of the world-renowned hotel, the solution also needed to meet the expectations of the establishments discerning guests.
Following a thorough evaluation of a range of timber species, Accoya, a modified timber, was chosen. Supplied fully factory coated it provides excellent performance with a superb aesthetic finish that fits with the visual appeal of the restaurants surroundings. The result of 75 years of extensive research and development, it is the perfect choice for prestigious projects, such as The Boathouse, which demand quality, sustainability and flexibility.
In total, the restaurants exterior was clad using 10,000 linear metres of Accoya timber, applied in horizontal and vertical profiles, along with trims, reveals and corners. Elsewhere, Accoya also provided the finishing internal touches to the bar and restaurant areas. The Boathouse restaurant highlights Accoyas fast growing appeal within the commercial sector.
