Northscape is a new company based in Abriachan that designs, manufactures and constructs contemporary huts and small scale timber buildings.

From simple affordable structures to high-end bespoke accommodation, we provide a design, manufacture and build service on private, public or community-owned land. Choosing to build small allows us to use high quality materials at an affordable cost, while minimising our environmental footprint. Our huts and timber buildings are:

  • Architect-designed by guest architects in a range of styles and budgets
  • Finished to a high quality
  • Locally sourced; project components are made from locally-grown timber where possible (otherwise using FSC timber)
  • Sympathetic to the environment; each hut takes into consideration the ecology and heritage of its place
  • Customiseable; we offer the option of laser engraving both exterior and interior features
  • Collaborative; we work with a network of local makers and artists from the Highlands who can supply interior/exterior features such as stained glass, textiles, furniture and art

We envision a thriving Highland landscape where every person can experience and enjoy the local environment in a sustainable way. Our mission is to revitalise bothy culture through hutting, transforming our relationship with the natural world and celebrating the freedom and sense of place that a hut can offer.
