With the University of the Highlands and Islands having two campuses within the local area, one to the south in Oban itself, and the other to the north in Dunbeg there is a high chance that the university will want to utilise the new facilities available to the local area and open an additional School of adventure studies a course based in Fort William that has been continually adding members of the much-needed younger demographics to the west coast. However, for the Scottish games we want to provide facilities for multiple sports as described this has resulted in our proposal including multiple buildings, each with a specific use. To the north of the site, we propose a small building with a terraced seating roof, storage and sanitary facilities. Once the Scottish games have ran their course, our proposal can seamlessly transition to an activity centre offering both locals and tourists a range of activities from climbing to shinty.

This is primarily to lessen the impact on the local environment that roadside climbing venues often cause. directly to the south of that outdoor climbing venue we propose a cafe/bistro this will where most of the spectators and later activity centre customers will be able to get food and drink with there being no other restaurant or cafe in the area, this building will likely provide a continual revenue stream from tourists attracted to the natural beauty of ganavan. the other three buildings are specifically design for their respective sports. With the largest being the Shinty/Football and Rugby facility followed by the Water sports Centre and then the Indoor climbing wall.
