Over the last 20 years, two have been restored, created from the stones of ruins which stood on the property, while two are newly built but very sympathetically matched to the originals.

All have vaulted ceilings and underfloor heating, Caithness slate floors and oil stoves. The double bedrooms hold traditional built-in king-sized boxed beds and up in the eaves is a twin room.

The main house is contemporary, but harled externally with a pitched tile-covered roof to blend in with its surroundings. Internally the accommodation is suitable as a family home or it could be run as a guest house.
