Great Glen House
Great Glen House
This is part of Great Glen House, with the main entrance to the right of the photo. Great Glen House was built in 2006, as the headquarters for Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). It was built on the site of an old nurses' home, which was part of Craig Dunain Hospital.
Great Glen House is designed to be very environmentally friendly - building materials include locally sourced wood, and crushed masonry from the nurses' home. It is very energy efficient - highly insulated, with natural ventilation and solar water heating.

As well as SNH, it is now used as offices for other public bodies, including the Crofting Commission, Brd na Gidhlig, Paths For All, the Moray Firth Partnership and the Procurator Fiscal.
