At last, a trip up to Skye with husband to walk the boundaries of the land and check out tree cover and renovation options for the barn.
The weather was truly Skye – blustery skies and squally showers interspersed with shafts of bright sunshine. It was November, so also cold and windy. We wrapped up warmly.
We spent a couple of hours on the plot, aligning the house plans with the best of the sea views over the Sound of Sleat and working out the best shelter. We’re lucky, as there are already trees on the South Western boundary which provide good shelter from the prevailing winds. We’ll need them…
And there is this beautiful outcrop of what we believe to be Lewisian Gneiss poking out of the moss at the top of the Croft.
An ancient stone. A stone for sitting and thinking, or maybe just watching the world go by.
And it’s the inspiration for the name Stone Croft..
