Loch Duich Residence in Letterfearn

This beautiful house, by Rural Design Architects, in an extraordinary location on the edge of Loch Duich enjoys extraordinary views to both the Five Sisters Mountain range and to Eilean Donan Castle across the loch. The project combines both new build and refurbishment. The highlight is the amazing view through the structural glass gable.

The Kendram Turf House, designed by local architects Rural Design, lies on the northern tip of the Isle of Skye. The architecture acts as an arrow pointing out to sea and the turfed roof and weather timber cladding contribute towards the architecture blending in with the surrounding landscape. Although the design may initially appear complex in form, it is relatively simple. A ‘goal-post’ steel frame supports the structure that contains relatively few connections, freeing up the internal space of structural walls.
