It’s been reported that one person has died and others injured in a fire at luxury Scottish hotel, Cameron House in Loch Lomond.
Firefighters confirmed they were called to the property on the banks of the Loch at 6.40am this morning, as the blaze took hold in the main house of the five-star property.
It’s been reported that one person has died and four others, including a child, have been taken to hospital for treatment.
Other residents were evacuated while more than 45 firefighters continue to battle the blaze.
The hotel said the facility will remain closed for the next 48 hours.
A spokesperson for the fire and rescue services said: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 6:41am on Monday, December 18 to reports of a fire that had taken hold within Cameron House Hotel, Balloch.
“Operations Control immediately mobilised four appliances and an aerial appliance to the scene.”
Cameron House said on Twitter: ‘We’re currently dealing with a fire within the main building. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service are on site and dealing with the situation. We will provide a further update as soon as we can.’
The iconic business is said to be one of the best luxury hotels in Scotland and is home to 136 bedrooms, Michelin-star restaurant Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond and expansive spa, golf and activity facilities.
Earlier this year, under new ownership by KSL Capital which acquired the business in 2015, Cameron House completed a £4m renovation across the property, upgrading bedrooms and introducing a Great Scots Bar Terrace to the offering.
