ARISAIG’S land sea, and islands centre is open for visitors again following a major renovation.
The historical building will now cost the Arisaig community trust, thousands less each year in heating bills as eco-friendly materials have been built in to keep out draughts. A recent air-tightness test on the centre showed draughts in the building have reduced by 91 per cent since the work was completed.
Hugh Cameron, chairman of the trust. said: ‘This is the start of a new greener era for the Arisaig community. The refurbishment of this well-known information and heritage centre will provide much needed warmth in what was an extremely cold and draughty building and, by reducing the bills and the carbon dioxide emissions of course, it will be a much more cost- effective way of running this community owned building.’
