Beaton + McMurchy Architects

We were formed in June 2004 and have considerable experience in the construction industry with both partners having worked in this area for the last 35 years. In this time we have been involved in numerous projects of all types, in both the private and public sectors, acting in the role of project architects, administering building works through to completion. The practice comprises two architects, a senior architectural technologist, a junior technologist and secretarial staff.


We believe that we are well placed to provide a quality architectural service for our clients due to our extensive experience and strong design skills that we bring to all projects.

Beaton + McMurchy Architects is an Argyll based practice working principally in Argyll and the Western Highlands though we have worked all over Scotland. Beaton + McMurchy Architects are a Chartered Practice with The Royal Institute of Architects in Scotland.

We have well established contacts and good working relationships with the local Planning and Building Standards departments, and indeed have been very successful in securing planning approvals on sensitive sites using our extensive local knowledge and also by consistently producing carefully designed buildings that respect their siting.


We are a design led practice with an open attitude who work well within a team. We see our role as designer and co-ordinator of the design and building process, bringing together all the elements including technical, economic and aesthetic factors through to completion. Our aim is to always provide a comprehensive quality service.
