With many of us looking for escapism during these difficult times (while still staying safe at home*), what better way to lift our spirits than by taking a virtual tour of Scotland’s most amazing views.
Harlosh Black - Isle of Skye
Harlosh Black is located on the Isle of Skye, near the breathtaking Cuillin Mountains. The positioning of windows and glass walls used in this modern build draw your eye straight through the structure to the outside world – embedding it in the spectacular landscape. Making stunning use of clean lines, space and natural light, the Harlosh Black acts almost as a frame for the view.
The Field House - Avernish
Nestled in the crofting community of Avernish, on the coast of Loch Alsh, is the inviting The Field House. This timber eco-build is warm and cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. Its open living space treats you to wrap-around views of Loch Alsh and the spectacular Eilean Donan Castle.
The Stonehouses - Treetop House - Ullapool
Treetop House, situated in Ullapool, is perched on the side of a gorge with a stream which transforms into spectacular waterfalls during wet weather. With its unique elevated position, the house gives 360-degree panoramic views of surrounding mountains, expansive seas and forests formed of birch ash and rowan. The master bedroom has stunning views of Loch Broom.
Rink Hill - Tweed Valley
Located on a 500-acre farm, this glass-fronted bolthole offers astonishing views over the Tweed Valley. Built with the spectacular views in mind, the whin-stone property was made from recycled stone, previously used for a dry stone wall. Rink Hill’s timber cladding, sourced from a nearby forest, helps the structure to blend beautifully into the landscape. The building’s curved glass front gives panoramic views of the surrounding forests, hills and the expansive sky. Sit back and relax in the living room or window seat and spot the skylarks and buzzards overhead.
Aspen Lodge - Ardnamurchan
Watch the sunrise and set over one of the most remote areas in the UK at Aspen Lodge. Situated on the west coast of Scotland, on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, it boasts beautiful views all year round. The lodge’s spectacular cathedral windows frame stunning views over Loch Sunart. With some of the UK’s darkest skies, enjoy a blanket of stars on clear nights and make the most of your opportunity to experience the northern lights.
