The project is for the renovation of The Watch House, in Crail. The building is listed and sits at the edge of the conservation area in Crail, overlooking the Firth of Forth and The Isle of May.

It is a spectacular site. The Watch House was built 250 years ago and the watch house keeper controlled the supply of grain, goods and water coming into the Kings Mill. The Kings Mill dated back to the 12 century but was demolished in 1920. The last watch house keeper retired in 1909. The building was abandoned and eventually converted badly into holiday accommodation until it was bought early this year my New York based client. My client is a frequent visitor to Scotland’s East Coast.
