CONSTRUCTION is under way on eighteen ‘high-end’ lodges in Langbank which are due to welcome their first guests this summer.

The £2.5million River View Luxury Lodges are being built just off the M8 at West Ferry.

The venture is led by Calum Melville, CEO of Edison Capital, whose operations include Principal Building in East Kilbride.

Mr Melville said: “It has been a long road getting to this point but now that we have all the planning permissions in place, we are looking forward to seeing our vision made a reality.

“The popularity of luxury self-catering lodges in Scotland over the last ten years is well-documented and West Ferry will offer not only a relaxing stay in an idyllic setting but is also readily accessible to a huge swathe of Scotland’s population, being just 10 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes from Glasgow city centre.

“Langbank is a lovely, friendly village with a fine golf course and a hospitality venue that attracts wedding guests and others all year round, so we anticipate that the local economy will be given a welcome economic boost by the River View Luxury Lodges and the steady number of visitors we hope to attract.”
