HIGHLANDS HYGGE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape News -

Povle­sen’s part­ner Anne Storm Ped­er­sen and Dan­ish in­te­rior de­signer Ruth Kramer are restor­ing and re­fur­bish­ing Wild­land’s farm­houses, lodges and both­ies, sprin­kling some Nordic cool as they go. The in­te­ri­ors of the two farm­houses – Kil­liehuntly (above and be­low) and Kin­loch (pre­vi­ous page) – man­age to marry tra­di­tional Celtic and mod­ern Scan­di­na­vian: Hans J Weg­ner’s ‘ Wish­bone’ chairs sit next to a bench carved in Orkney, and orig­i­nal fire­places are flanked by lamps from Swedish brand Wäst­berg. The pared-back pal­ette re­flects the sur­round­ing land­scape – moor­land greens and stormy grey-blues – with an oc­ca­sional hint of chintz in the form of toile de joie wall­pa­per.

You can ei­ther self-cater or opt for full board. The menus in­clude eggs from the hens on-site, bread pep­pered with oats and ce­viche of fresh mack­erel from the west coast. Help your­self to one of the com­ple­men­tary bi­cy­cles to go moun­tain bik­ing – al­ter­na­tively, guests can hike and swim in the River Tromie at Kil­liehuntly or around at­mo­spheric coastal coves at Kin­loch (from £2,000 for a week for 8 peo­ple; kin­loch.scot, and £120 per per­son per night; kil­liehuntly.scot).
