We imagine a new future for the Drummond, which returns it right back to the heart of the community. Where visitors to the area stay and enjoy all the benefits of Crieff and Strathearn, and community events of kinds bring people together.
In parallel with our efforts to secure public funding to regenerate the Drummond Arms, we are also marketing the building to private investors.
Why would we do this? In the current environment, funding for heritage projects is competitive, capital costs for a renovation of this size are high, and success is dependent on major public funders. It is therefore pragmatic to assess the attractiveness of the building to private investors and developers. Partnering with the private sector is an essential activity in a project of this scale.
Our priority in marketing the building remains to partner with private investors in the site for a refurbishment and restoration, but we are open to developers’ own proposals. At this stage we don’t want to exclude any ideas that lead to a better outcome for the Drummond.
