Open Day at Drummuie, Golspie - 2 April 2008

27th March 2008

The public is being invited to look around the The Highland Council's new flagship office complex in East Sutherland at Drummuie, Golspie, from 1-3 pm on Wednesday 2 April. The impressive listed building, situated on the southern outskirts of Golspie, has undergone a total refurbishment to provide modern office accommodation for up to 130 administrative and professional staff from a number of Council Services.

Staff from offices in Brora, Dornoch and Golspie will relocate to Drummuie in a phased move from Monday 14 April.

An official opening will be held at a later date, yet to be confirmed, when it is hoped to invite some of the older former pupils of the college and display old photographs.

Phil Tomalin, Ward Manager for East Sutherland and Edderton, said: "There is a lot of interest in the refurbishment of this historic landmark building and we are delighted to offer the public this opportunity to look around the premises before they are occupied. I am sure those interested will be impressed with what they see."

Drummuie was built in 1903 and most recently was a technical wing of Golspie High School.

The refurbishment has been carried out by Morrison Construction. A new access from the A 9 has been provided to Drummuie, which provides a link to the Kilbruar wind farm development and opens up land for affordable housing.
