William Gray Construction are to start work on the new Falls of Shin visitor centre at Lairg.
The Falls of Shin is a site of extreme natural beauty famed for being an excellent spot to witness the annual salmon run. The falls are a major tourist attraction for the north of Scotland, drawing visitors from miles around and providing a sizeable boost to the local economy.
Unfortunately, with many tourists making long journeys to visit the falls, there have been several complaints about the lack of facilities at the site. The previous visitor centre was tragically destroyed by a fire in May 2013 leaving the falls lacking in these sought after amenities and sparking a community-driven campaign to replace the burnt-down centre.
William Gray Construction are delighted to announce that we will be constructing this new centre, which is targeted to be open by spring 2017. The project should not only help to attract more visitors to the stunning falls, but also create jobs to replace those lost when the previous centre was destroyed.
