A DINGWALL architect is seeking to turn a vacant storage yard in Tain into a holiday letting business to sit alongside a proposed new micro-brewery.

Applicant Michael Maggs, of Greenhill Street, is seeking planning permission to install three holiday letting units on industrial land beside The Mill, Shore Road, near Tain MOT Centre.

His family are also preparing to redevelop the nearby three-storey former mill building into a bottom floor brewery and middle floor offices for a joinery business, with a flat for the family above.

A previous bid to build 24 flats there was rejected in 2015, while another application to erect 11 flats was approved the following year but not acted upon.

Mr Maggs, who owns the land, is proposing three holiday ‘container’ units – one with a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, one double and single bed unit and other with two doubles.

Parking at the site would increase from seven spaces to 10.
