Plans have been lodged to develop 38 apartments at a golf course near Inverness.

Canadian-owned Cabot Highland hopes to build the apartments at its Castle Stuart golf course.

It is developing a second 18-hole course at the site and was also given permission recently to build a new administrative hub and repair and repurpose farm buildings as part of the wider development.

The application for the apartments has been submitted to Highland Council by Ness Planning, of Croy, on behalf of Cabot Highland.

They would be housed in 16 lodges on a 1.9 hectare site and include stone and timber finishes.

Cabot Highland bought Castle Stuart Golf Links in June 2022.

Earlier this year, it was named as the 33rd best golf course in the world according to a top 100 list compiled by Golf World/Today’s Golfer.

Work on the new championship course has started and is expected to be completed and ready for preview play in late 2024 with a grand opening in the spring of 2025.

It is designed by world-renowned golf course architect Tom Doak.

The American designed six of the courses named among the top 100 in the world in 2021 but this will be his first public design in the UK.
