Title View of Windyhill from the north, Kilmacolm
Alternative Title North facade of Windyhill, Kilmacolm
Abstract/Summary The exterior of Windyhill is finished in grey roughcast or 'harling', a means of weatherproofing Scottish houses in use since the fifteenth century. The pitched roofs, gable ends and stout chimneys are other obvious vernacular elements. The sizes and positioning of windows relate to the lighting and privacy requirements of the rooms behind.
