Am Falachan

A Roundhouse on The Shores of Loch Broom, North West Scotland

Small Stove Installed in a Yurt

Am Falachan is the name given to this incredible roundhouse yurt, which is located on the shores of the beautiful Loch Broom in North West Scotland. This spectacular retreat was designed by a Scottish-based tiny home company called Echo Living, and it was commissioned by the owners of a nearby cottage. The hideaway was built to house their friends and family, but it’s also used as a space for communal activities such as yoga.

Our small wood burning stove sits at the very heart of this adorable little bolthole and provides plenty of warmth and comfort to its guests throughout their stay, which is essential if you’re spending any time here during Scotland’s colder months! Our little wood burner is also equipped with a stainless steel cooktop, which allows you to fire up your own meals on the top of our miniature stove! As the evening draws in you can even make a hot drink on the top of your stove, which you can enjoy whilst you huddle up in front of a warm, crackling fire and watch the sunset over the mountains.

As you can see, it gets quite cold in Winter! But this makes it all the more cosier inside. Plus, there’s something incredibly special about walking back to your yurt in the evening and seeing the soft glow of a fire that’s already waiting for you inside. 

This bespoke yurt is a site-specific variant of the company’s Echo Yurt, and it has a light, open space inside which is designed with a minimal aesthetic. The interior of the property is lined with soft, pale spruce, and the exterior is clad with a darker Scottish larch. We absolutely love the blanket of sedum which covers the roof of the roundhouse, and the floating design of the kitchen surface is also very impressive  and provides plenty of space for storing any utensils underneath it. Nevertheless, one of the standout features of this property has to be the expanse of floor to ceiling glass windows, which delivers a panoramic view of the loch and adjoining mountainside during Winter.

You can even book your own stay at this amazing dwelling by visiting its page on airbnb here! 

If you’re looking to purchase a roundhouse yurt and need someone to help with the design of your dream tiny home, then do not hesitate to contact the team at Echo Living! They’ve done an incredible job with the design of this magical Scottish escape, so make sure you check out their website!

Our Hobbit Stove Has Been Fitted!

"We had a Hobbit stove fitted this week by Alex Reay from Flues and Fires, and I just wanted to get in touch to say it is AMAZING and we love it! We have a lovely cast iron tiled fireplace which I was desperate not to lose when we installed a small wood burning stove, but until I found the Hobbit on Google, everyone told me it would be impossible to keep the fire surround. The Hobbit is perfect - not only does it fit very snugly, but it looks fantastic and the blue door complements the tiles very nicely. We are sitting enjoying a fire now and absolutely loving it! Thanks for creating such an amazing product."

The Best Stove Ever!

"It’s the best stove ever! It’s easy to light, very efficient, burns anthracite and stays in overnight (ours has been in for three weeks now). It even keeps a kettle of water at the ready for a cuppa! What more can I say, we love it! Just the thing to make our Yorkshire home cosy, and the cat loves it too!"

First Small Stove Installation

Was looking for a small stove for my first self-install. Found Mark very helpful. Knowledgeable, friendly service. Stove burns well and generates lots more heat than the previous open fire. What is not to like?

A Huge Thank You!

"Dear Mark and Gill, a huge thank you for designing and making the Hobbit stove! We had two different London-based fireplace companies tell us that we simply had to knock out the old cast iron and tile fireplace to fit in a woodburning stove, and that there was no other option! Then we found you online. We are delighted with our little Hobbit, which swallows up logs and kicks out a good amount of heat. Perfect for the winter! I will also be writing to the London-based fireplace companies to put the Hobbit on their radar. Best wishes."

It's Brilliant!

"Hi Mark, here's a photo of the Hobbit installed in my Yorkist grate. It’s brilliant! It also throws out a lot more heat than the grate did."

The Little Hobbit Has Stepped Up To The Challenge!

"We just wanted to say how impressed and how much of a life saver our little Hobbit has been! It was fitted a few months ago in our holiday home in Rhu, Scotland, which is a large open plan conversion in a Victorian house. This weekend our boiler decided it was not going to play ball. The little Hobbit has stepped up to the challenge, providing heat to a very large area, about twenty eight foot by twenty four foot with a high ceiling of about eighteen foot, keeping the room reasonably warm, warm enough for us not to use cardigans!”

Very Pleased With Our Hobbit!

"We are very pleased with the stove and think it looks great! We restored our fireplace (it was hidden under plaster!) and the whole look is better than we hoped!"

Our Pride And Joy!

"What a fantastic fireplace with the beautiful Hobbit stove. It fits perfectly into the small space and throws out a lot of heat. Here's a photo of our little stove, now our pride and joy and much admired by all who see and feel the warmth."

Fantastic!

"Just to bid you all a Happy New Year and to say how much we’re enjoying having our Hobbit stove! It was easy to fit with the help of your excellent ‘how to’ videos and we’re just awaiting our inspection by building control for the certification. The Hobbit has fitted neatly into the hearth vacated by the old gas back boiler (with a little cosmetic rendering) and never ceases to surprise us how much heat it can deliver to the point that the new condenser boiler is having an easy life, thereby saving us on gas bills too! Everyone loves having a ‘real fire’ in the living room."

A Brilliant Little Wood Burner!

"The stove we bought from you is really starting to come into its own as the weather cools down. Here is a photo showing how much one of our dogs is enjoying it!"

Brilliant Product!

"Just wanted to share a picture of our newly installed Hobbit. Absolutely delighted with it, and so pleased we were able to retain our existing fireplace as well. Brilliant product, thank you!"
