Scottish Blackhouse

The blackhouse is built on clay where the base stones of the wall stand on pebbles to prevent movement. The thick insulated walls of the home are built from two layers of dry stone with an infill of peat topped off with a layer of clay to prevent water getting in to the wall and then capped with turf which absorbs any excess water.” – Natural Homes
