Perched at the southern tip of the Kyle of Tongue, this exquisitely renovated holiday home mixes traditional Scottish architecture with modern interior design.

The fireplace is supplied with sustainably sourced timber from the estate.

Previously in ruins, an old Scottish cottage has been transformed into the Kyle House, a luxurious getaway for two that boasts dramatic views of the wild and windswept Caledonian landscape.

According to the owners, this two-story stone building is the only inhabited house to enjoy uninterrupted views along the length of the sea loch to the North.

The faithful restoration is the work of UK–based Groves-Raines Architects, who has applied traditional materials—such as stone, lime render, lead, and slate—to the two-story exterior, while also inserting a Nordic-inspired aesthetic to the interiors dressed by Ruth Kramer.

The remote getaway sits in a wild and diverse landscape in the far north of Scotland.

New openings have been cut into the gables and the rear elevation to frame picturesque views and bring more natural light indoors.
