Work starts on new Black Isle care home

20 May 2019

Work on a new £4 million care home on the Black Isle has begun today. Construction teams are now in place and have started the process of clearing the site ahead of a 60 week construction programme. The new facility from Parklands Care Homes will offer 40 bedrooms and will be the group’s ninth care home.

Parklands appointed Aberdeen based construction group CHAP to build the new care home. CHAP also built Lynemore, Parklands’ latest care home in Grantown.

Ron Taylor, managing director of Parklands Care Homes, said: “We are excited to start work on our latest care home for the Highlands. We know there is keen interest from the local community in our plans and we are delighted to be getting underway. This care facility will be a fantastic community asset for Fortrose and the Black Isle.”

Parklands also plans to build a £6.5 million care hub in Inverness comprising a 48 bed care home, 16 assisted living suites and a day nursery for 20 children. Work will start later this year.
