A dilapidated former shepherd's cottage has been transformed by an architect couple to create a stunning remote bolthole.<br />
<br />
The near-derelict structure had an earth floor and a rotten roof but is now a stylish and cosy three-bedroom house.<br />
<br />
Gillian Scampton and Andrew Barnett, who both work as architects in London, bought Fernaig Cottage in the north-west Highlands of Scotland in 2012 and completed the project last year.<br />
<br />
The quirky build has now been shortlisted for the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) House of the Year Award.
