The one-time Highland retreat for probably the 20th century’s most iconic fashionista is about to be restyled as a hotel.
In the 1920s and 1930s, Rosehall, a Georgian Highland mansion was once a romantic bolt hole for Coco Chanel, founder of the famous Paris fashion house, and her lover the Duke of Westminster.
The house, on the Rosehall Estate has lain empty for 60 years and is on the verge of being transformed into a £6m boutique hotel. Work is set to begin in the next year.
Rosehall is the only building in Scotland known to be decorated by Chanel and is where where she installed what is thought to be the country’s first bidet.
