A Croft in the Hills

by Katharine Stewart - Find out more about the author

 

eBook also available from the iBookstore

A real classic among Highland books, A Croft in the Hills captures, in simple, moving descriptions, what it was really like trying to make a living out of a hill croft 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.

Katherine Stewart lived on a croft at Abriachan, near Loch Ness, for many years. This book is the first in a series, which includes A Garden in the Hills, A School in the Hills and The Post in the Hills. Katharine died, aged ninety-eight, in March 2013.
