Overlooking the Summer Isles at the mouth of Loch Broom this pair of cottages are sunken into this luscious green landscape.

 

The process of sourcing local materials was a key aspect of this project. The stones were reused from nearby crumbling dry stone walls, timber lintels and posts were reclaimed from a local pier being dismantled and the turf was cut from grassland in front of the Brochs and all the meadow flowers and fauna were preserved.
