The Location

The studio sits in a natural niche in which it was designed to fit, surrounded by Croft-land of heather, myrtle and wild orchids enjoying extensive views to Loch Bracadale and hills that are quintessentially Highland Scotland. Its situation simply takes your breath away.

Sitting on the Minginish Peninsula there is an abundance of walks and hikes through wild countryside and on to secluded beaches.

  • Eagle spotting above, and otter spotting below
  • The wood burner on a cold windy day; huge picture windows soaking up the sun and light
  • The uniquely designed space and environmentally sustainable design that creates a calm and relaxing atmosphere
  • Wild walks on your doorstep
  • Beaches that give the Maldives a run for their money
  • Simple but modern open plan diner and kitchen with all you need to cook up a storm
