Downtime

I’ve been on holiday, visiting friends who have a croft on the Isle of Skye, and thus largely out of contact and unable to post.

I say holiday, but for the last several years what we’ve been doing is helping our friends plant trees on their croft to act as wind protection, to eventually grow into fuel for the wood fired stove and heating, and also to help bring back a small bit of the Great Caledonian Forest that used to cover Scotland until we cleared it and put sheep onto the land.

Here’s a picture of the glen on our last day there, just as the sun was setting on MacLeod’s Tables.
