Taylor and Fraser have worked on a number of prestigious redevelopment projects, but this one was particularly special with its rich historic royal links. The Castle of Mey, located in Caithness on the North Coast of Scotland, dates back to 1572. It was property of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, from 1952 to 1996, when Her Majesty generously gifted it with an endowment to The Trust.

Angus MacInnes, Construction Director, said;

“We are pleased to have played a role in this important redevelopment project. Not only will it allow more people to enjoy the beautiful Caste of Mey grounds and scenery, but it has boosted the local economy in the creation of jobs both during the project and in the running of the B&B”

Scope of Work

Our work on this project comprised a new build corporate building clad in timber and locally sourced Caithness stone providing corporate, conferencing, and banqueting facilities along with the conservation and conversion of the existing three storey granary building to create high quality en-suite bedrooms with associated hard and soft landscaping, car parking, and access road upgrading.
