High ideals
A development of 17 factory assembled homes in Kildary, Rosshire, by the Highland Housing Alliance with assistance from Highland Council and the Scottish Government has pioneered new methods in energy efficient construction.

Each home was erected in a fraction of the traditional build time and meets stringent energy efficiency regulations through provision of renewable heat pumps, underfloor heating, roof insulation and low energy windows.

Furthering these ecological credentials a welcome pack will be made available to each buyer comprising of a fruit bush, laundry pulley, composting bin, raised growing bed, water butt, bird/bee/bat box and potato barrel.

It has also been announced that the Scottish Government will provide £1.9m in funding for 22 of the 55 houses to be built at the Scottish Housing Expo, to be held in August 2010 in Inverness.
