An ideal fit with Fernhill Stone

1 Jul 11 Opened in October 2010, the Standing Stane restaurant at the Wellsgreen Golf Range in Windygates, Fife, Scotland has made extensive use of Fernhill Stone’s Alpine Pheasant range to achieve a look that matches the exterior stonework of the building.

“The golf range had a shop and bar with driving bays at either side of it,” explains project interior designer Gordon Walker of Walker Interiors, Dundee. “A major demolition and extension project resulted in the construction of a new bar, restaurant and kitchen with driving bays on top and a purpose built golf shop.”

Walker specified Fernhill Stone cladding for the interior of the 2,500 square foot restaurant and bar. “I used it for bespoke fireplaces and on sections of the walls to make it look like the outside was continuing on the inside. The curved bar counter was also formed using the stone cladding with a solid oak top” he says. “I had already used Fernhill Stone products before in a night club/bar in Arbroath. I use them mainly because of their look and feel. They work very well internally and actually look like natural stone which a lot of these products don’t. The Fernhill Stone Alpine Pheasant product was ideal for this project and we managed to bring the project in on budget.”

He doesn’t hesitate to recommend Fernhill Stone to others. “I have recommended them several times and I’m currently specifying Fernhill Stone products on another hotel project I am working on and I’m hoping to use it on a Distillery Visitor Centre project I have coming up as well.”
