When the placing is as extraordinary as the windswept terrain of the Scottish Highlands, it’s greatest to go away interiors basic. Which is why, when tasked with preserving an abandoned, century-outdated stone residence in the Scottish countryside for conservationist/hotelier group Wildland (the exact same entrepreneurs powering Killiehuntly and Glenfeshie Estate), Edinburgh-dependent architecture organization GRAS (established by climbing star Gunnar Groves-Raines, son of Nicolas Groves-Raines, the architect guiding Killiehuntly) remaining the stone exterior intact but stripped the interiors. Now the rooms are “a collection of finely comprehensive oak boxes” with oversized home windows searching to the wilds outside the house. Kyle House—named for the shallow loch it overlooks—is out there for stays, “tailor-created for two folks with extra beds for one particular to two smaller young children.”
Just take a appear, then deliver an e mail to inquire about availability (there’s no on the net scheduling system—”we like to discuss with you,” the hoteliers say).
