Description
We have an Art Studio and Gallery on a croft. We have three cows and will be getting chickens. I was a Head gardener and worked on country estates in Scotland. I am now hoping to develop the garden here.

We have a small courtyard garden with raised beds which is part of the Quiet Garden Trust. Also there is a fenced area where vegetables and flowers are grown. We are hoping to build some paths and wooden raised beds on the site. As part of this area some drains need to be laid. We have dug out a sunken garden which is still to be developed where banking will need to be supported. We have compost heaps and manure to be dug in. I build my garden fences using chestnut paling and rails.

We have a bread oven and wood pile.

The blue bothy offers warm and comfortable accommodation is wood lined with a bunk-bed. The toilet is in the nearby studio and bath and shower is in our house.
