Traditional specialists

Since the mid-1990s, Kishorn Heritage has delivered a diverse portfolio of restoration and build projects in challenging locations across the Highlands and Islands, evolving from sub-contract specialist masonry work, to earning the reputation as the preferred principle contractor for traditionally constructed fine homes, working estates and discerning civils work.

Founder and stone masonry specialist Mike Tweats was joined by son, Daniel Tweats MRICS, in 2020 and together the West Highlanders and their team of highly skilled trades and craftsmen work with world class architects, landscape architects and designers to deliver outstanding projects to an exclusive client base.


Kishorn Heritage is committed to excellence in the standard of projects we deliver and a value to which we hold at our core. We take pride in not only being a socially responsible contractor but also environmentally, nurturing and supporting our people and communities, to enhance people's lives and surroundings.

Excellence is hard to achieve, yet we believe that through fostering honest relationships with clients and design teams, collaborating to fulfil their aspirations every step of the way, Kishorn Heritage is able to consistently deliver projects of distinction.


Enjoying an unrivalled reputation for quality, our skilled in-house team seamlessly employ traditional skills, innovative techniques and strategic thinking to deliver truly unique projects. Self-confessed perfectionists, we find beauty in the detail, providing an exceptional level of craftsmanship, leaving behind beautiful structures which look like they belong and stand the test of time.

Kishorn Heritage are passionate about every project undertaken, working hand in hand with a network of trusted sub-contractors who share our values.


As important as our mastery of traditional and cutting-edge construction methods is our knowledge and appreciation of the finest native, reclaimed or repurposed materials. Proving our time-served expertise, our knowledge is relied upon by world renowned design teams and no stone is left unturned in sourcing the absolutely finest materials and suppliers - whether it be locally-felled Douglas Fir or reclaimed granite setts from historic Edinburgh.

We take our responsibility to hone and evolve our people’s skills and professional development, with apprenticeships, specialist fellowships and further education ensuring we continue to offer clients the highest levels of craftsmanship.


Committed to reusing, reclaiming or repurposing materials, sustainability has been at the heart of everything we have done for the last four decades. As restoration specialists, we strive to reinstate historical structures to their former glory using original materials and techniques.

Equally and where appropriate, we employ modern sustainable materials and construction techniques to build in a way that optimises the performance and environmental credentials of a project.

Living and breathing sustainability, as a socially responsible contractor we are dedicated to nurturing our people and communities.
