Laidneskea is an attractive traditional 19th century steading built on a slope high above the river Tay near Aberfeldy. As with many 19th century farm steadings the demands of modern farming had made Laidneskea redundant and it was falling into dereliction. A local developer purchased the site and appointed Simpson & Brown to develop proposals to adapt and extend the buildings to form four new dwellings. Natural materials such as stone, wood, lead and slate were used throughout, with traditional detailing on the existing buildings and a more contemporary approach on the new additions. New openings were kept to a minimum with the doors and windows painted in grey and blue. Modern flat roofed extensions were added in timber, with clear articulation between the new and the old.
