We dream of homes in the rolling hills, save our pennies for out-of-town trips, and make a beeline for any slice of greenery the moment the sun peeks out from behind the clouds (or the rain stops!). That feeling of being in the great outdoors can be quite unbeatable. But how to recreate that sense of freshness at home? With this question in mind, our focus for this issue is on homes that offer ideas for connecting inside and out.

life swap

Back in 2011, moving to the remote Scottish Highlands was not on Iona Drysdale’s to-do list. ‘I was working as a doctor in New Zealand and hadn’t planned to return to Scotland in the foreseeable future, when my uncle was taken ill,’ she says. ‘I came back for six months to spend time with him.’One of Iona’s uncle’s unfinished projects was an old fishing net store. ‘My uncle had bought it as a ruin and was planning to convert it into a house,’ she says. ‘He’d got as far as having the site cleared and levelled when he fell ill.
