A Croft in the Hills

A Croft in the Hills, first published in 1960, is now acknowledged as a classic among Highland books.  It captures, in simple, moving descriptions, what it was really like trying to make a living out of a hill croft near Loch Ness fifty years ago.  A couple and their young daughter, fresh from city life, immerse themselves in the practicalities of looking after sheep, cattle and hens,  mending fences, baking bread and surviving the worst that Scottish winters can throw at them.

Their neighbours are  few, but among them they find the generosity and community spirit that has survived in the Highlands for generations.  Working as a tight family unit, they learn to cope, and in time grow to love their little croft.
