Plans to rebuild Cameron House a year after fatal fire
A blaze at the hotel in December claimed the lives of Richard Dyson and Simon Midgley.
Plans have been lodged to rebuild one of Scotland's most luxurious hotels - nearly a year after the resort was devastated by a fatal fire.
Cameron House Hotel was engulfed by the blaze, which claimed the lives of two guests and gutted the interior of the 18th century building.
Richard Dyson and Simon Midgley from London died in the fire with over 200 people evacuated and three others injured in the incident.
The owners of the hotel in the idyllic Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park have since submitted a formal application to carry out restoration work on the building.
A planning application submitted to the national park's planning department on October 26 sets out in 95 documents the full extent of the works which are required at the loch side hotel.
It includes the retention and restoration of the façade and the construction of a new internal frame within the building.
The plans also feature recladding, new dormer windows and roof terraces, and the demolition and rebuilding of walls.
The proposal states: 'Partial downtakings, reinstatement, extensions and alterations to fire damaged hotel and landscaping within the hotel grounds.'

The hotel has been closed since last year's fire and was only handed back to its owners in July.
A supporting statement lodged with the application, by Lichfields planning and heritage consultants, said: "Clearance and salvage works, including the installation of a façade retention scheme are underway on site at Cameron House.
"The applications for planning permission and listed building consent, which are the subject of this statement, seek permission to re-instate the historic building, which will ultimately help bring this world-class hotel back into use.
"Since the fire in December 2017, the project team has worked to establish the extent of work required to reinstate Cameron House and to bring the resort back into operation."
The park authority has already given the hotel permission to install a temporary lodge visitor reception area and extend the southern access road, as well as to demolish its central tower structure and chimney stack.
A decision is also expected this month on the taking down of the roof structure.
