Croft House

The Croft House is typical of traditional island white houses located on a beautiful ten acre woodland croft. The house was in very poor repair and had been badly renovated in the 1970s removing any traditional features of the original croft house.

 

Extensive remodelling of the interior created a new light and airy contemporary interior with the living space on the upper floor accessed via a spiral stair. Two door openings were created in the gable end of the house which enabled the addition of a tiny two storey sun room at the end of the house. This effectively re-oriented the house towards the south and the breath-taking views over the lochs to the Harris hills.

The croft has been transformed into a modern eco-croft with a sustainable mixed broadleaf and conifer woodland and three wind turbines - which produce enough power for at least eight houses.
