Lapwings are a family firm who have built up a fantastic reputation over the years within the local community within the Highlands of Scotland.   The majority of our business comes from word of mouth and recommendations from previous clients.

When we build a house we take the personal approach. If it’s not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for our clients! We call this the “Lapwings Standard”
