A Croft House, Isle of Skye.

A Croft House, Isle of Skye.
With no money to import materials the crofters of the island used whatever materials were available to build a home, stones that were nearby, driftwood for roof timbers often provided by the many shipwrecks and rushes for the roof covering, walls were around three feet thick and windows kept to a minimum with a peat fire for light and heat.
The distant island to right of the image is Fladda-Chuin, A submarine grounded on the island in 2002 and caused damage to the hull that cost an estimated £5 million pounds to repair.
Stay safe but have a HFF

A large view if you are able please

Beautifully composed Roger. The croft house looks wonderful against the blue of the sea with the low clouds softening the horizon. the presence of the fishing boat gives a good sense of scale and the height of the land above the sea.

A gorgeous image Roger. The old croft is attractive but they were quite small inside, especially for a family. I imagine it must have been a hard life but what a place to live!

A wonderful view with the little trawler and the islands visible in the band of light on the horizon.
Beautifully captured

HFF and have a good weekend

A corker of a shot Roger.................the light and colours are simply amazing! I love your composition too - the boat is nicely positioned in the frame and I like the glimpse of the island on the misty horizon.

The thatch seems to be in great condition, with the thatch weights properly in place. Very nice work sir. Have a splendid weekend.

Many thanks Betty, the low roof almost cut into the bank is in the direction of the prevailing winds that blow for most of the year, this helps keep the croft warm.
