So, the Yangtze Maotsetungson tractor made it's long journey across the moor from the next village - or was it the one after that? No idea since it's a while back. However, it arrived in all it's glory, was parked up for all the fellow crofters to wonder at in the front yard. In the morning it was still there. Mid-morning it was still there too. Apparently it wouldn't start!!! Can you believe it? Mr Crofter soon got to work fettling and fubbling and then it sprung into life with a cough and a puff of smoke. Oh, the wonder.
On the Isle of Lewis off the west coast of mainland Scotland lies a croft inhabited by an English off-comer. His Mum and Dad live nearby and help him run the croft. This is a photographic record of their lives as it unfolds.
