Prior to the restoration, the Grade I Listed tower house was in a critical condition: dilapidated and on the Buildings at Risk Register, it was in desperate need of attention.
After taking over the property, new owners Steve and Alison Reid-Timoney embarked on four years of sympathetic restoration. The refurbished castle is now being used as a luxury hotel, offering eight bedrooms and a 4-floor honeymoon suite.
The establishment, which is set in 14 acres of landscaped gardens, also accommodates the Albert and Michel Roux Jr Restaurant, and the Roosevelt Grand Hall, a medieval-style banqueting and ballroom facility.
The wheelchair lift boasts a glass door and upper-level, half-height gate blend security. It offers a solution to the restricted head height, caused by the building’s sloping ceiling, whilst complementing the Hall’s glazed roof.
Meanwhile, a RAL 8016 mahogany brown finish was chosen to supplement the surrounding woodwork.
Since the installation of the hydraulically-driven lift, Crossbasket Castle has achieved compliance with section 4.2 of the Technical Handbook (Scotland) and the 2010 Equality Act, allowing access for all.
