ON THE CROFT
SELF CATERING - SKYE

About The Croft

THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF COMFORT AND SIMPLICITY

On the Croft offer Self Catering in the Isle of Skye on a working Isle of Skye Croft. Crofting is a traditional social system in Scotland defined by small-scale food production. Crofting is characterised by its common working communities, or "townships". Individual crofts are typically established on 2–5 hectares (5–12+1⁄2acres) of in-bye[4] for better quality forage, arable and vegetable production. Each township manages poorer-quality hill ground as common grazing for cattle and sheep.
