    Default Inside a Modern Scottish Country House


    Michael Harding for The New York Times
    “The Shed,” as Peter and Jennifer Drummond call their home, is a modern take on traditional farm buildings in Scotland. In lieu of slate, the roof is made of zinc; the bricks on the facade are the same shade as the surrounding fields.

    Great location but utterly soulless. Hell, they don't even have a tartan carpet or antlers on the wall.

    I kinda like it. It could do with a bit more color, but it seems soothing somehow. Love the kitchen.

    That kitchen is amazing, even if it does look like Ikea cabinets...still, it is striking.

    They should have taken a photo when the sun was out. It's making me depressed.

    The exterior is horrible. The interior I could live with but I'd have to make some changes like the bedroom. Absolutely no personality.

    The hell do you see when you look out the window, dreary peat bogs and lichen?

    No thanks.

    Kind of depressing, not even so much the view, the exterior and interior make me want to reach for Lexapro, Xanax, Zoloft, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, Remeron and Zyban.

    they couldn't have taken pictures on a nice day? it's boring but i'm assuming it has huge view potential.

    ITA. Nice to really get away from it all too.

    Houses like this are popping up all over the area I live in, they all look ridiculously out of place. This house, like the others, is an eyesore.

    If I visit Scotland, I'd like to see Scotland, not a low-rent Ikea version of it.
