Consultation under way
Staff face axe at fire-ravaged Cameron House
Cameron House Hotel was engulfed in flames
At least150 staff at the fire-gutted Cameron House hotel are likely to be laid off as a large part of the building remains out of use.
Around 300 workers are in consultation with management at the five-star resort on the banks of Loch Lomond where a devastating blaze on December 18 left two guests dead.
It is understood 155 staff on zero hours contracts have been paid until the middle of January but the hotel is unable to offer further employment.
The hotel employs 450, with the lodges, golf course and Boathouse restaurant remaining open. A meeting was held with staff at Dumbarton Football Club on Thursday morning to inform them of the consultation.
Simon Midgley, 32, and Richard Dyson, 38, from London, died in the fire.
More than 200 guests were evacuated as dozens of firefighters rescued guests in the top floors and fought to save the building from further damage.
