The Kerrylamont Centre for Skills & Enterprise
Kerrylamont, situated approximately half a mile south of Mount Stuart House is a group of interesting listed 19th century buildings which used to be the traditional Home Farm and was used as a Dairy Unit. Framing operations ceased about twenty years ago and many of the buildings were re-purposed.
Under the supervision of the Trust’s Chairman the site is now undergoing a transformation, in consultation with Historic Environment Scotland and Argyll & Bute Council all the buildings will be restored and repurposed as flexible work spaces, furthermore one contemporary building is being built at the south end of the site.
The first building to be restored which has already been granted planning permission is the new Creamery for The Isle of Bute Cheese Company and is due for completion by the end of 2020; the Byre, the Mill Building and the Bull Pens will follow while the Category A listed original Creamery will be phased in in consultation with Historic Environment Scotland.
The Kerrylamont Centre will provide small and medium size workshops, studios, stone working facilities, an open plan media studio, communal spaces and a flexible event space. As the development evolves updates will be posted.
