Historic Scotland Refurbishment Case Studies: Kildonan, South Uist – Insulation to walls, roof and windows
This report describes works undertaken to improve the thermal performance of the walls, roof space and other elements of a detached rural cottage on the island of South Uist. The project, part of an area trial scheme, was delivered by the Sustainable Uist community organisation with funding and guidance provided by Historic Scotland. The aim of the project was to demonstrate methods and materials that could be used to upgrade the thermal performance of a building type commonly perceived as being difficult to treat, which were sympathetic to the aesthetic and fabric requirements of the building.
As with previous Refurbishment Case Studies, this report gives details of the work that was carried out to each building element followed by the measured thermal improvement. Published in 2012.
