Government restrictions on construction sites have been blamed for the collapse of a building firm in western Scotland.

Derek Forsyth and Blair Milne, partners with Campbell Dallas, have been appointed joint administrators of the largest construction business in Oban, Neil McGougan Ltd. 

Founded in 1986, the family-owned business provided a wide range of building and construction related services to a substantial client base across Argyll and Bute and the West Highlands.  

The administration was caused by severe cash flow problems stemming from the implementation of Coronavirus restrictions including the cessation of construction activity on non-essential sites. 

The business has ceased trading with immediate effect and 20 staff have been made redundant.
