Cairngorms National Park plans for 12 contemporary holiday cabins in Donside

Published on : Thursday, June 13, 2019

The planning committee of Cairngorms National Park has approved 12 contemporary holiday cabins in Donside in order to boost its tourism.

 

 

The proposals by Blackbyre Developments are aimed at attracting more domestic and international travellers to the eastern edge of the area.

 

 

 

Based in Corgarff and situated on the Snow Roads scenic driving route, the cabins will be located in a tourist hotspot only a few miles from the Lecht Ski Centre and historic Corgarff Castle.

 

 

They will sit amongst a Scots pine forest and are made using sustainable materials with power provided from renewable energy sources.

 

 

Rachel Gray of Blackbyre Developments, said that they are pleased to be given the go ahead for this innovative project in Corgarff. Over recent years Donside has seen many local businesses close despite the high number of tourists passing through the area. Corgarff and Strathdon have just as much to offer the domestic and international traveller as some of the best performing tourism destinations in Scotland. This development will enable more visitors to stay overnight and increase spend in local businesses and visitor attractions.

 

 

The Snow Roads driving route has increased the amount of visitors driving through Donside.

 

 

Visit Aberdeenshire’s ambition is to grow tourism spend in the region to £1 billion annually by 2023. Jo Robinson, VisitScotland’s regional director, said that he is encouraged to see businesses investing in new product at a time when tourism is central to Aberdeenshire’s economic strategy and a key sector for growth. The Cairngorms National Park welcomes a wide range of visitors each year to the area, and visitor numbers look set to rise with the launch last year of the Snow Roads Scenic Route and the North East 250 touring route.
