Wilderness lodge to be renovated after £1m restoration project

The historic Wilderness Lodge at Mount Tamar has received a £1 million restoration project to add new features to its iconic facade.

The new design includes a new roof and interior wall, and the lodge’s existing roof will be replaced with a new floor.

The lodge was built by the local authorities in 1890 to allow travellers to explore Mount Tammar and the nearby Wilderness, before being closed to all but a select group of tourists in the 1970s.

The Lodge reopened in 2012, when it was refurbished for tourists.

The project is due to be completed by the end of 2018.

Mount Tamar National Park is one of the country’s best wilderness areas, with more than 1,000 peaks and glaciers to climb.
