Today I took the opportunity to visit Rothesay Pavilion to see the progress that had been made in the 1st phase of the restoration of the Grade A listed building.
With the enabling works now completed, the 18 month project due to commence in the summer, will restore many original features, including some features from the original plan which were never built.
Funded from some 16 different sources, the ambitious plans include versatile function spaces, gallery, and redevelop the caretakers house to include 3 small business units.
It was a great opportunity to see the extent of the work that has already been undertaken, and to hear the plans for it once again to become a 'palace of entertainment and delight for the people of Bute and visitors to the island.'
I look forward to visiting again as the work progresses.
