First phase begins!

It was demolition Tuesday on Eigg this week, in preparation for contractors arriving on site to begin phase one of the redevelopment of An Laimhrig.

There were plenty machines on show as the old tearoom store was brought down to make way for our new toilet and shower block. Residents pooled their skills – and their heavy plant – to safely demolish the building which was constructed as a generator shed servicing the shop and tearoom during the 1998 redevelopment.

Next up will be the arrival of contractors some time in early December. Watch this space…
