Cairn Garroch creates its own vernacular; an intersection of glass, stone, wood and steel, the house makes a declarative statement about what modern coastal architecture can be. Exciting at first glance from the village below, one step inside and cutting edge design envelopes every sense. And then, of course, there's the view. The house enjoys a rarely afforded perspective with epic panoramas stretching for miles, the horizon changing character by the hour. This connection to the exterior is vital to every area within Cairn Garroch, and with so many sculptural forms presiding, the sense of harmony between art and nature is palpable throughout this extraordinary residence.
