Isle of Rum Croft to Let - June 2012


The Isle of Rum Community Trust has one bare land croft available.

Croft No.2 is a bare land croft extending to 5.36ha on semi-improved sloping ground overgrown with rushes, and will require a significant amount of work to improve it to anything beyond rough grazing.  However, the croft enjoys an open, south facing aspect with fine views across to the peaks of Hallival and Askival, up Kinloch Glen, and out to Loch Scresort.

Crofting offers the potential for both new housing and new economic opportunities, and two of the three crofts on Rum are now let.  Nic Goddard, the island’s newest crofter, is very excited to be part of the latest chapter in Rum's journey.  She says; “This is an amazing place to raise our children, make our home and create a living for ourselves. Within a very short time we already feel part of the community and very much at home."  Their vision for a low impact, self sufficient, sustainable lifestyle in an unspoilt corner of the UK was perfectly answered with the opportunity of becoming crofters on Rum.  “The island provides the perfect backdrop to make our dreams come true".

Interested parties are encouraged to visit the island before making an application for the croft, and community members will show people around and answer questions.
