The development is for 9no. Houses on a redundant Brownfield Site in Inverkeillor.


Currently the site is derelict brownfield with grassy areas and the spoils from the demolition of the steading. Access is from the North-West from Kirkton Road via a track the leads to Kirkton Cottages and further on across the railway line to Lunan. The proposal is to modify the access track through the site to retain access to the cottages.

The Masterplan is for a total of 9no. new houses incorporating 3no. types to provide a variety of different houses and no. of bedrooms

  • House Type A3 – 4 bedroom 2 Storey House (plots 1, 2, 3, 8, 9)
  • House Type C – Large 4/5 bedroom 2 Storey House (plot 4)
  • House Type D – 3 bedroom Bungalow (plots 5, 6, 7)

The houses are modern designs to replicate agricultural buildings and all incorporate the same material palette to a recent successful development at West Newbigging: pitched slate roof, vertical weatherboard cladding and natural stonework. This should allow the new houses to fit well in their Inverkeilor rural setting.

House Types A3 and C contain a double garage on a separate wing adjoining the main house whilst the larger Type C house contains a large master bedroom suite above the garage. The proposed houses all contain large open plan kitchen/dining/living areas at ground floor which open onto a covered external patio space connecting the houses with the gardens.
