Just a short distance from Wildland’s Kinloch Lodge, our newly restored Kyle House cottage is an architectural gem quite unlike anything else in the Highlands. Strongly Scandinavian in design and exquisitely finished. It sleeps two and is available on a self-catering basis. …actually, there is room for one young one as well.

Bookings are for a minimum of three nights, or for as long as you might crave to escape and get away into the wilds of Sutherland in the northern Highlands.
Located at the Southern tip of the Kyle of Tongue, Kyle House sits high in the wild landscape and is the only inhabited house to enjoy uninterrupted views along the length of the sea loch to the North. It’s an attractive two-storey classical Highlands stone-building with all the benefits of facing East towards Ben Loyal.
Legend says that the house was built of stone from the 2000-year-old Dun Mhaigh Broch, an iron-age or Pictish building which still sits on the hill above the cottage.
Previously derelict, we have faithfully restored the exterior of Kyle House using only traditional materials: stone, lime render, lead and slate. New openings have been neatly cut into both gables of the rear elevation to let light in and, of course, to provide dramatic views out to the hillsides. With almost nothing remaining from the original interior – and an over-riding focus towards good design, a love of architecture and exceptional craftsmanship – we created our own plan to form a series of sensible and natural living spaces, pared back to an almost monastic simplicity.
Our goal, to have a place for travellers visiting Wildland that’s all about a sublime and beauty and the often under-appreciated pleasures of solitude and silence.
The end result, harmony.
