Inspiration from architect:

The local landscape is characterised by distinct and ancient features, cairns, standing stones; and the Cloughmore Stone – a glacial erratic. The house reads as another stone presence embedded in the land – the uniformity of slate roof, and deep walls clad in precisely cut 100mm courses of thick stone (slate) convey permanence.
