North Woods have built a number of very small buildings
including cabins, home offices and bird hides. Indeed it is a scale
of work ideally suited to our resources and close to our hearts in
terms of “living lightly” and close to the land.
One of our bird hides is at Scourie beach top in west Sutherland
and another overlooking Loch Shin near Lairg. Both are built
almost entirely out of home-grown larch with steel roofs. They
are also both founded on small concrete piers lifting them clear
of the ground and minimizing their ‘carbon footprint’.
