The latest proposals for a £100 million golf and spa resort in Angus, Scotland, have been submitted to the local council, marking one of the country’s largest hospitality investments in recent years.
The Angus, a new luxury resort in Dundee and Angus, will be the region’s first five-star hotel and is expected to bring in £40 million to the local economy when it opens.
The initial concept, which received planning clearance in 2017, has been updated to become a “best-in-class” hotel, with 175 guest rooms, 160 residences, and ten luxury lodges.
A trademark Darren Clarke golf course, clubhouse, and golf academy with driving range will be available, as well as a rooftop sky bar and 1,900 square meter spa and leisure facilities.
Mike Forbes, owner of Forbes of Kingennie (renowned for its luxury lodges and golf course), designed the resort, which will be built on 300 acres of land on the Shank of Omachie.
The Angus Council is likely to make a decision in early 2022, with the building set to begin in the summer if the new designs are approved, with a projected opening date of 2024.
According to Forbes, “The Angus is an unrivalled opportunity for Angus and Scotland. It is simply an iconic hotel and golf complex which will surpass anything on offer in the country.
“With a five-star hotel and spa offering, as well as the first signature golf course from legendary Ryder Cup winner and former Open champion Darren Clarke, The Angus will create jobs and opportunities, generating significant income and boosting Dundee and Angus as a world-class tourism and leisure destination.”
VisitScotland regional leadership director, Caroline Warburton, added: “This is an exciting development for Dundee and Angus, and a first for this region. A five-star hotel is a fantastic addition to the area’s strengthening tourism portfolio – putting it on the map not only in Scotland but internationally.”
