THE DEMOLITION of the ruins of the former Moorfield Hotel in Brae is now under way.

Local civil engineering company EMN Plant has won the contract to demolish the remains of the building and clear the site following the devastating fire at the end of July.

While metal will be taken to the John Lawrie site at Rova Head for recycling, all remaining debris will be landfilled.

The 100-bedroom Moorfield Hotel burnt to the ground on 27 July after a fire started in a second floor linen room. All 70 occupants and staff escaped uninjured.
