The existing byre was converted and improved for holiday lettings. Part of a phase development, this conversion forms one side of a proposed courtyard of holiday-let buildings. It was decided to externally insulate and clad the building in larch – to save space internally and to reveal the internal stonework of the old byre.

Isle of Coll byre property

The living area, where the original stone walls of the byre have been lime-rendered, is illuminated by concealed lighting in the roof-space. Heating is provided by a ground source heat pump. This 2-bed holiday let has two boreholes – for the heatpump, and for the household water source. A new-build is scheduled to start onsite in September 2007, at the end of the letting season.
