A Minimalist Gem On The Isle of Skye

Views From Inside And Out
Published by

Facing sweeping views of Loch Bracadalea and Cuillin to the east, and Macleod’s Tables to the west, Harlosh Black h on the Isle of Skye in Scotland takes the drama of the landscape and amplifies it through simple but distinctive design.

Positioned and designed to both withstand the weather and embrace the landscape, you’ll be immersed in both. Surrounded by open croft, this split level, open plan hideaway for two is private, contemporary and quietly luxurious.

A strikingly modern residence modeled on traditional Scottish longhouses of the region, Glasgow based architects Dualchas have captured the cinematic quality of the landscape through a simplicity of gesture. Clad in dramatic black timber with strategically placed floor-to-ceiling glass that opens out to the views, the home’s position and response to the site was carefully considered.

Black h boasts contemporary yet homey interiors featuring neutral black cladding and white walls, complemented by wooden tones. The space is composed of clean lines and exquisitely modest details: sheepskin rugs, leather lounge chairs, and wood accents bring warmth to the minimalist style. 

 But whether you’re trekking through the surrounding croft, or nuzzled with a good book in bed, panoramic views abound at Black h, offering cozy sightseeing and even whale watching from the comfort of the sofa!
