Tiny House in a Landscape

Loch Voil

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape photo was taken by Alex von der Assen and the cabin was photographed at Loch Voil, Highlands Scotland, in January of 2014.

Alex says: You can take the boat to get to the nearest pub, but sometimes it is just nice to be by yourself.

According to Wikipedia: Loch Voil is a small freshwater loch in Scotland. It is a short, narrow loch approximately 5 km (3½ miles) in length. It is separated from Loch Doine by fluvial deposits from the Monachyle Burn and is drained at its eastern end by the River Balvaig at Balquhidder. The Loch can be reached by a small single track road from Balquhidder leading to Inverlochlarig.


  1. Charming! It looks like my old cabin out in the boonies of Alaska, where I lived for 16 years. You could only get there by float plane. bears were a problem-don’t want to leave any food in your cabin if you go away for a couple of days.
    This is a great photo!

  2. Alex, I very much enjoyed the photos of your travels, & your tiny, peaceful home. I am, eating my heart out! However, perhaps someday my dreams of obtaining same will occur. Enjoy, & good luck in your studies. BTW, love your new ride too!

  3. Beautiful! I have been there myself about two weeks ago and we actually discovered this lone cabin at the shore of Loch Voil. Such a wonderful place and some tranquility that seemingly moves from the surrounding to your soul indeed. The sign on the door says “Retreat Hut” by the way and judging the setting and scenery this happened for a reason… 🙂
