The construction package involved taking the existing Tillypronie House annex buildings, stripping out the internals, and creating a new 10-bedroom fully catered shooting lodge. The package involved replacing all of the existing windows with heritage units, major stonework alterations to the façade, structural alterations internally including fully removing the ground floor slab, and renewing below-ground drainage installations.

The building was taken all the way back to the stone internally and completely new fabric was provided. Considerable work went into the elevations which required alteration to the existing façade stonework to reflect the new scheme. This required careful temporary works systems to stabilize the existing stonework while the downtakings were completed and the new stone elements stitched back in. This process was undertaken during the winter of 2018/2019 in less than favourable weather conditions but the results were excellent and compliment the existing façade very sympathetically. This stonework was undertaken by masons directly employed by Pert Bruce.
