Understated. Contemporary. Authentic.
The new Kyle House is a careful re-invention of the traditional Scottish
cottage. The simplicity mixed with old building materials, the best of craftsmanship and good contemporary design is nothing less than extraordinary.
Located at the Southern tip of the Kyle of Tongue, Kyle House sits elevated in the wild landscape and is the only inhabited house to enjoy uninterrupted views along the length of the sea loch to the North.
On approach, it reads as a simple, symmetrical two-storey classical stone-building, facing East towards Ben Loyal, the Queen of the Highlands and with its back to the prevailing wind. It is believed that the house was built from remains of the 2000 year old Dun Mhaigh Broch, an iron-age building which still sits on the hill above the cottage.
Previously derelict, Kyle House's exterior has been faithfully restored using traditional materials: stone, limerender, lead and slate. New openings were neatly cut into the rear elevation and on both gables to let light in and provide dramatic views out to the landscape.
The North window, which commands uninterrupted views down the Kyle of Tongue, is flanked by an open fire, burning wood sustainably sourced from the estate. In reference to the connection with the natural ground outside, the ground floor is constructed of a locally-mined polished stone, heated to be warm underfoot.
The three windows each have dramatically different views; East to Ben Loyal; North to the Kyle of Tongue and West to Dun Mhaigh Broch.
