In 2004 Christopher Palmer Associates were commissioned to work with architects, James Denholm Partnership to develop a landscape setting for the 5 star Culcrieff self-catering village at Crieff Hydro. Culcrieff village is a recreation of the original farm steading on a sloping site enjoying stunning views over Upper Strathearn and set within the grounds of Crieff Hydro.
The landscape scheme centres on a central courtyard providing informally terraced semi-private spaces relating to each self-catering cottage using changes of level and domestic scale planting enclosing a series of lawns and a private raised deck for each cottage.
The cottages are available to let for twelve months of the year and planting has been chosen to give seasonal interest throughout the year.
