Dunan Cottage is a creatively designed contemporary home on the shores of Loch Duich, opposite Eilean Donan, with spectacular views across the loch to the Five Sisters of Kintail. The house provides spacious, light and comfortable living spaces with open plan internal areas and external landscaping directly overlooking the shoreline.
Letterfearn is a small village on the western shore of Loch Duich, one of the most scenic and romantic areas of the Highlands. Kyle of Lochalsh, where the bridge crosses to the Isle of Skye, offers a good range of shops and facilities as well as a railway station. There are a number of options for primary schooling and secondary schooling is available in Plockton. Inverness, about 1½ hour’s drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city, including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.
Dunan Cottage was designed by Rural Design https://www.ruraldesign.co.uk/projects/residential in conjunction with the owner to create an imaginative contemporary house which blends with its surroundings and takes advantage of the spectacular setting. The interior is infused with light, the spectacular glass wall in the open plan living room, kitchen and dining room incorporating the stunning landscape into the house and giving uninterrupted views up the loch to the Five Sisters of Kintail.
Natural materials include timber cladding, exposed stonework and oak timber flooring, while circulation and bathroom areas are tiled with slate. High quality fittings have been used throughout including Grohe bathroom fittings, while the design allows for easy conversion of the garage and galleried sitting area to further bedroom accommodation.
The house benefits from excellent thermal efficiency using the latest standards of insulation and energy saving devices and includes the additional features of solar panels, a heat recovery unit and extensive use of glass, maximising solar gain.
