KIL­LIEHUNTLY FARM­HOUSE

In the Moment - - Escaping - www.kil­liehuntly.scot

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.

Kil­liehuntly Farm­house sets the cosy Dan­ish hygge aes­thetic against Scot­land’s breath­tak­ing land­scapes
