The Tinhouse is built with a deep and honest respect for the surrounding environment. The basic pitched roof structure mirrors those found across the inner Hebrides - traditional workers cottages designed to endure the Atlantic winds. The corrugated grey exterior walls often merge with the dramatic skies - However, this is a place that simultaneously wants to blend in and stand out.
The Panoramic window in the minimalistic and stylish living space frames the landscape in a way that is reminiscent of a great oil painting. From the warm and cosy vantage point of the Tinhouse you see sunsets that blend into clear night skies, far away from any light pollution.
Tinhouse is a unique, architectural award-winning luxury holiday cottage for two. Located in North West Skye it is ideally located for foodies, walkers, or simply for those that want a secluded break in the extraordinary landscape of the Isle of Skye.
Finished with the highest quality furnishing and fittings, the house exudes a relaxed style and enjoys a panoramic view over the seascape of north-west Skye.
Tinhouse has been designed and self-built by the owners. Gill and Alan run one of the highlands most successful architectural practices, whose work is regularly profiled in the press and regularly wins architectural awards.
