Custom House, Bowling

Custom House is a Category B listed building built in the early 19th century. The Bowling basin area has been granted funding by Historic Environment Scotland.

Redpath is fully refurbishing the building internally and externally in compliance with the buildings listed status and to the approval of the relevant statutory bodies.

This project will create new holiday accommodation by creating seven double/twin bedrooms, with en-suite facilities, and a common room within the existing property. The rooms will be located throughout the existing floor levels with a new common room located on the ground floor.

We are also providing new building services throughout, utilising existing supplies, including hot and cold-water system, small power, ventilation and heating. Limited data installation will be included through the provision of wireless access points.
Along with our client and design team, we are working in close partnership with Historic Environment Scotland who are providing us with guidance on preserving original building features. This includes:

  • Reusing original roof slates. The original roof slates have been removed, resized and cleaned ready to retile the roof once all repairs have been completed.
  • Where possible original timbers are being kept.
  • Repairs to original timber window frames.
  • Externally, the current mortar is being removed and replaced with lime mortar.
