Barkland Croft - Fair Isle

This National Trust for Scotland owned croft will be available to let under crofting tenure around Spring 2015. The associated croft house has four bedrooms, good out buildings and sits on 10.5 hectare of croft land with a share in the common grazings.

Do you have the appropriate skill set and ability to run a croft in this marginal but exceptional location while also contributing to the community of around 55 people?

If you are familiar with crofting and have a secondary vocation which is transportable to this location and / or are willing and qualified to turn your hand to other work which becomes available from time to time i.e. deck hand on boat, airstrip fire crew, various trade works such as electrical, plumbing, building etc then crofting on Fair Isle may well be for you.

If you are not familiar with crofting please speak with the Crofters Commission or visit their website in order to get background information prior to seriously considering an application.
