The Ecovillage, founded in the late 1980s, is nestled behind seaside sand dunes twenty-six miles from Inverness.

Twenty-seven buildings are completed; there are plans for forty more. All incorporate environmentally sound, energy efficient construction, and natural materials, including locally grown and harvested timber from managed forests, straw, local stone, and natural clay tiles.
