Its Good 2 Give Ripple Retreat

My page:

On Monday 26 May 2014 planning consent was given for our Ripple Retreat.  Its inspiration is the ripples on the loch – hence it’s working title though we are now all agreed we love the name Ripple Retreat.

The roof will be zinc and much of the rest glass and oak.  The pier will let families sit out and enjoy the view up and down Loch Venacher, near Callander.

It will have three bedrooms, a caretaker’s /companions room, kitchen, playroom, dining room and lounge.

When we were told the building would have to be exceptional not in my wildest dreams did I think it would be this exceptional.

I always said we wanted to create something we could be proud of, something Scotland could be proud of and I believe we are about to do just that. Have a look here ....

[url=][/url]What’s the next stage?

Well, it is getting Building Standards approval – that will take several weeks.  Which gives us time to beg some more money.

Will you help create the Retreat with us? 

Any and all donations are most welcome and gratefully received.
