REVISED plans of the house to replace the former Highland home of  disgraced paedophile Jimmy Savile have revealed what it may look like once completed.

Savile lived in the Allt-na-Reigh cottage in Glen Coe from 1998 until his death in 2011.

The Highland home is understood to have been the site where 20 of his victims were abused, leading to the building described as a “stain on Scotland’s most outstanding landscape”.

The cottage, often targeted by vandals, will be replaced by a new house to honour the Scottish explorer Hamish MacInnes.

A design statement from Jon Frullani Architects reads: “It is a location which contains some of the finest scenery Scotland has to offer, yet despite this, the vandalism demonstrates a feeling towards the property, born from a disgraced previous owner, in spite of the fact that another previous owner was the renowned Scottish mountaineer Hamish MacInnes”.

Harris Aslam, boss of Kirkcaldy-based convenience stores business Greens Retail Ltd, bought the cottage and decided to let locals have their say on the future of the property.

Aslam’s new plans are hoped to fit in with the landscape better than his initial proposal in 2021 which caused a local outcry.

The house, named Hamish House, is designed to be over two stories with four bedrooms, a garage and a large patio area with an outbuilding offering additional accommodation for guests to the house.

The outbuilding will sit close to the A82 road access.

For greater allowance compared to the earlier proposal, this time builders are using thermopine timber, and natural stone and capping the house off with a zinc roof.

Aslam said: “This really is an incredibly exclusive property and presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to develop something we can all be very proud of as adorers of the Glencoe Valley and as proud Scots.”

“Accordingly, intending to pay homage to Sir Hamish, it gives us great pride to propose the outbuilding to be named Hamish House along with a commemorative plaque to be installed on-site to honour these great achievements.”
