The Brochs of Coigach
Unusual architecture within a stunning landscape: The Brochs of Coigach are two roundhouses, situated on a hill on the coast of the Scottish Highlands. To reach this natural paradise, the last leg of the journey takes you on a winding single-track road next to steep mountain slopes and through an elongated valley. Once there, a luxurious accommodation with breathtaking views awaits you. The walls are made of old stone field walls, even the bars of a dilapidated pier were used as part of the building materials. The buildings resemble the prehistoric roundhouses which are typical for the northwest of Scotland. Today, however, you live here with all the modern comforts and surrounded by contemporary Scottish art.
