The lovely Donald four tractors doffs his second best woolly hat as he comes over to greet me on the croft next door to The Crofter's. Donald was beginning the ploughing of the croft in this spot to put the potatoes in for this year. They are on a five year rotation apparently. Not sure if that means he rotates the ground on a five year rotation or just plants the blimin things every five years.
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.
