Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

half a million sounds relatively ambitious for office space in Grantown. I just heard office rental are down 50% in Paris this year.

Middle of nowhere?
You mean the centre of UK skiing and historical home of BASI.
In post Brexit world there is not much point having HQ in Alps.
BASI was obviously founded in Spey valley and has its roots there.

Sad to see office go. But if they can make 200% profit on buiding then it may make short term economic sense to balance books. Similar size office / wages down south would cost them much more.

So : Why shouldn't BASI office be in Scotland?
More so in age of internet.

No reason at all, but I think a flexible contract for serviced office space in Glasgow would be more suitable than a very lovely, but way too large building in Grantown with a brass plaque on the door would serve the BASI membership better. Sort of like the office where interviews for the CEO were held a few years ago. Good links via rail and air, larger local workforce to draw on and no need for a large capital investment in these trying times.

Not sure why BASI ever though they needed a building like this? Delusions of grandure

It cost them buttons at time and was cheaper than renting longer term
They will sell it for 200% profit

Not sure Glasgow has many advantages over Grantown/Aviemore (both of which are only 40 mins from Inverness airport).

Being near the Cairngorms (historical home of BASI) seems natural to me. Though I appreciate for some anything north of Watford will be seen as 'middle of nowhere'.

Hope so. It will help fill a hole.

Do you know how much they paid for it? IIRC it was being discussed as an imminent purchase when I did my Common Theory course at Glenmore Lodge, which I think would have been 2008.

Perhaps, my understanding of those parts of the world is very limited. I'd have thought being in a city the size of Glasgow would offer a range of advantages over a small town in the Highlands, but you'd be in a better position to make a judgement on that.

Not sure of exact sum.
Way less than half a million!
