Tarskavaig was a traditional 'butt an ben" two roomed cottage with a couple of "interesting" extensions added around the sixties. We knocked down the old cottage and used the blank canvas to build the family home we now enjoy. The wraparound balcony and upstairs lounge are designed to take in the 180 degree panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the hills beyond.
We lived for eleven months on site in our caravan to build "The Old Stables" which was in the heart of a conservation hamlet at Brunton. All traditional materials were used in the build, timber sash and case windows, cast iron rhones, slate roof, conservation veluxes and locally sourced stone to match.
The subsequent feature in Scotland on Sunday shows more details of the build and photographs of the finished interior.
