Principle contractor

Kishorn Heritage has earned a reputation as the preeminent principle construction and engineering contractor for a diverse portfolio of clients, including many of Scotland’s most prestigious castles, estates and private residences.

Delivering a varied range of medium to large projects - such as restorations, bespoke fine quality builds, lodges, steadings, bridges, viaducts, dams, piers, biomass plants and turbine houses - we have developed excellent long-term working relationships with key partners, subcontractors and stakeholders.

Predominantly design-led, with quality paramount, we work closely with clients throughout the timeline of their project to ensure we leave behind beautiful buildings that exceed their expectations and stand the test of time.


Decades of experience - backed up by knowledge of centuries-old traditional methods and materials - has provided Kishorn Heritage with time-served specialist skills and conservation techniques that breathe new life into older buildings. As custodians of our building heritage, we understand historical structures and the craft that went into their creation, taking responsibility to cherish the past whilst building with integrity for future generations to enjoy.

We take as much pride in the thoughtful maintenance of historic structures, nurturing original details, as we do in bringing older buildings into the 21st century through the judicious use of innovative modern or reclaimed materials.

For peace of mind, Kishorn Heritage boasts vast experience working in remote, architecturally and ecologically sensitive locations, enjoying fantastic working relationships with trusts and environmental conservation teams.

New builds & refurbishments

Kishorn Heritage works closely with clients, architects and designers to realise their visions to the best of their potential. Whether working on bespoke contemporary new builds or complete castle refurbishments, our values and commitment to quality remain the same.

We prioritise re-claimed or locally sourced natural materials wherever possible - whether that is local timber and quarried stone, or repurposed materials present on site - to ensure each building is built or refurbished to its best, in harmony with the environment.

We work with mechanical and engineering partners to provide modern luxury living solutions that are sympathetic to historic buildings and offer state-of-the-art energy efficient solutions, such as ecologically friendly Icynene spray foam insulation.

Civils works

Kishorn Heritage has specialist experience in carrying out maintenance and remedial works of traditional civil structures such as canals, viaducts, piers and bridges.

Collaborating with engineers, we have an excellent track record of creating dynamic and functional new infrastructure that looks like it belongs. A recent project saw us work with an award-winning landscape architect to improve access to a Highland castle, creating a cobbled road, suspension bridge and stone parapets, carrying out substantial hard landscaping and ground works, too.

For clients seeking greener ways to power their estate, we can deliver new energy and control buildings - such as biomass and pump houses - that sit seamlessly within the landscape alongside existing buildings.
