Morar HouseHELENSBURGH and Lomond Chamber of Commerce is encouraging the restoration of Morar House — formerly Drumadoon — in Upper Colquhoun Street opposite Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Hill House.

The former nursing home has been lying derelict for several years, but now there are plans by developers All Saints Living for a refurbishment and internal development.

These will be explained at a drop-in briefing session hosted by the Chamber on Wednesday February 15 as they need help to give the William Leiper mansion, originally the home of the Hogarth shipping family, a new lease of life.

All Saints Living ask: "Do you have skills to contribute? Are you a builder, roofer, landscape gardener? Have you talent to offer in a new build in the grounds? Interior design perhaps? Plasterer, painter, joiner, builder's merchant?"

The briefing session will be held in Helensburgh Parish Church from 3-7pm.
