The Kings House Hotel in Glen Coe looks set to be refurbished.

The owner, Black Corries Estate, said it was "passionate about breathing new life" into the property, a landmark building in the area.

Plans involve a revamp of the older parts of the hotel while an extension built in the 1960s would be removed.

Black Corries Estate has also proposed opening a hostel on the site and adding a new wing to increase the hotel's bedrooms from 45 to 80.

Susanna Thomson, of property managing agents Bidwells, said: "Whilst most of the public spaces will be significantly changed and improved to take in the spectacular surrounding scenery, we will be keeping much of the Climbers' Bar intact.

"We know we have some very loyal customers, many of whom have good memories of times had in the Bar, and it's important to retain that connection."

She added: "We hope to have a new hostel open before the summer and this will remain in operation during the development period along with a temporary bar serving simple, good food and refreshments."
