Black Shed

The “Black Shed” is located on the Isle of Skye at the foot of the Macleod’s Table mountains. The building was inspired by an old agricultural shed on the croft and painted black as a reference to the style of sheds in the neighbouring landscapes. It blends in well with its environment and its colour differentiates it from the usual white cottages. The building follows not only the form but is also in the footprint of the shed that it replaced with a corrugated roof and a polished concrete floor. Walls made of rough spruce boards keep it cosy inside – a wood burning stove, under floor heating and sheep’s wool insulation provide warmth on cold days. The open plan living room offers a stunning 270 degree view of the surrounding hills and Loch Dunvegan. With any luck you can even watch sea eagles soaring overhead and deer roaming the hills.

Sehr beeindruckend und erholsam haben wir hier die Symbiose von Innenraum, Landschaft und Wetter erlebt.
Das Black Shed ist ein ungewöhnliches Ferienhaus – perfekt durchgeplant, mit vielen guten Details, handwerklich tadellos ausgeführt und liebevoll eingerichtet und ausgestattet.
