Killiehuntly Hayloft
AMB_3706_cnsmms

Part of the Killiehuntly Farm complex, the steading building had deteriorated over time and was being used as a working farm building. GRAS faithfully restored the building back to its original form as a U-shaped structure arranged around a cobbled courtyard. The building now houses the laundry, the estate office and meeting space, and a self-catering property in the former hayloft to the rear. The compact retreat occupies the original footprint of the hayloft and incorporates a small kitchen and shower room on the lower floor, along with a large sitting space and bedroom on the upper level, linked by a new Douglas fir stair. The water wheel was restored by Knockando Blacksmiths, which cast some new sections for the wheel and installed new oak blades and the launder to enable it to function again.
