Scotlarch®

Scotlarch®

Scotlarch® is the registered trade name for Russwood's selected heartwood of Scottish-grown European Larch.

Larix Decidua has long been used for cladding in North Europe, and is increasingly used for this purpose in the UK.

It is a very strong robust wood, and good quality timber can be relatively knot free although some knots can be 'loose'. It is referred to as a small movement wood.

Scotlarch is used on the National Trust for Scotland's Culloden Visitor Centre . The timber is sourced from within a 70 mile radius of Russwood’s Station Sawmill in Newtonmore, cutting down on costs and pollution caused by transporting materials. Local felling, machining and distribution make this a very environmentally friendly material.

The centre was designed by award-winning practice Gareth Hoskins Architects. Project Architect Thomas Bernatzky told us “The rustic texture of the Scottish-grown larch fits perfectly with the landscape. It will naturally age to a silvery-grey colour, which sits extremely well with the Caithness stone also used in the build.”

Mr Bernatzky mentioned that the low-energy assets of Scotlarch fitted well with the environmental policies of both Gareth Hoskins Architects and the National Trust for Scotland. Commenting on the source of the timber he said “the closer-by, the better.”
