Guardian to upgrade Perthshire home

A care home in the village of Dunning, Perthshire, is to be modernised. The new owners of Kippen House – the Guardian Care Homes Group – are making the substantial investment over the next six months to refurbish the large Victorian building and transform the residents’ rooms. Kippen House, which cares for young physically disabled adults and elderly infirm people, was built in 1871 in the style of a Victorian castle and is set in 11 acres of parkland, including tennis courts. Guardian managing director Gary Hartland said Kippen House had many shared rooms and the upgrade would convert them into 15 single and three double rooms, most of them ensuite, giving a total of 21 beds. The home was previously registered for 30.
