Eriskay Croft

Croft house, Isle of Eriskay, Hebrides, Scotland.

Disused croft houses are often called abandoned. That's not quite true. Yes, they have outlived their use, but the families still remain on the land. You can see the new house through the empty windows in fact. The islanders tend not to throw anything away. They might need to salve something, but they also have a long history of everything being taken from them.

Eriskay is a stunning little island. A knobbly rock, surrounded by the turquoise waters of the sound of Barra. Wildflowers carpet the island with a sweet fragrance to match in the summer. I love how the tall buttercups decorate and dance around this house...
