When you think of a traditional Scottish farmhouse, contemporary Scandinavian interior design is probably not quite what you are visualising. Yet Anne and Anders, owners of Killiehuntly Farmhouse, have managed to perfectly merge Danish design with Scottish heritage in the old stone building they began renovating back in 2011. They’ve created an e ortlessly stylish space, using quality natural materials and carefully-selected furniture made by Danish designers and Scottish craftspeople.
Nestled in the breathtaking landscape of the Cairngorms National Park, the house is understated yet elegant, contrasting dramatically with the ruggedness of the Highlands that surround it. Anne explains that her wish was to create a place with a feminine touch. “Scotland has always been rough and masculine. Whiskey. Hunting. Wild nature. I think there is an unexplored, interesting relationship between a beautiful Scottish estate and well-made Danish interiors, furniture and artwork.”
Food served at the farmhouse is either fresh from their own kitchen garden and farm, or sourced locally, ensuring wholesome, in-season meals that will ll you up after a brisk hike in the heather-clad hills. Follow this with time by the re, or retreat to your linen-covered bed with a good book, for pure relaxation.
