We’re delighted and proud to extend a very warm welcome to Morvern’s newest residents – Sara Davies and Peter Boyden, the pioneering first inhabitants at Achabeag. We’ve kept tabs over the months on the development of their remarkable house elsewhere on this site. This wonderful photograph of it was taken by Peter during the summer, just before it was finished.

 

The Boydens have been hugely patient and understanding about the fiddly bits with new housing development – the teething and the unforeseen problems that almost inevitably hold up building projects. Mains water, for example – piped from Lochaline village, a couple of miles away – was connected with a matter of hours to spare.

 

Congratulations to them, the builder Angus MacDonald and his team, designers Roderick James Architects LLP, and all the others who’ve put this landmark new building on the map. We send the Boydens the warmest possible welcome and thanks for their decision to come here.
