Prepare to stare. Perched 10 feet from the shores of Loch Beag, this house is a dazzle of windows designed to make the most of the views: across the Minch to the Hebrides, to the mountains on the far side of Loch Torridon, plus non-stop sealife and birdlife. While outside is wild nature, inside is calm, crisp minimalism: walls are white, floors are pale oak, decoration is spare. The smooth, Scandi-chic look is softened with deerskin rugs, leather sofas and wool headboards. Choose between the downstairs bedroom with patio doors to the loch and the larger upstairs room with huge velux to capture the hills and night sky. Linen and beds are top-notch as are the white-marble bathrooms. The open-plan, double-height living space is dominated by a floor-to-ceiling window – those views, again – and scattered with sofas, designer armchairs, bookshelves and a wood-burning stove. For cosiness, curl on the sofa on the mezzanine-level sitting area. The kitchen is a hi-tech gleam of everything you could need, with a handsome oak table for loch-view dining. There’s a patio for sunset drinks. Walk, swim, fish or simply gaze. And gaze.
