Securing the
Future of Crofting


In August last year Donald A Campbell applied to assign his croft at 467 South Lochboisdale to his son, Donald.  Having been born and brought up on the croft, Donald Jnr has been involved in all aspects of crofting from a very young age, helping out in township activities, gathering, dipping, clipping and helping his father on the croft.  Donald currently works as a mechanic.

Donald Snr, said “there are too many young folk leaving the islands and if giving the croft to Donald will help stop the decline then I feel I’ve done something to help retain the population.”

Donald Jnr, said “I’ve been involved in crofting all my life and it’s great to have a croft of my own.  I can now get on with fencing and getting some more stock, as well as growing winter feed. I’m sure Dad will be keeping an eye on me but his knowledge of the land will be invaluable.”
