Heaven on Earth

February 2024

Five years after moving into our Hebridean home we’ve now reached the next stage in our goal towards leading a self-sufficient life. We’ve purchased a few acres of agricultural land, known in rural Scotland as a croft.

The Outer Hebrides truly are a magical place to be and we would love to offer others the chance to experience their majesty. Our vision in buying a croft is to create a safe and welcoming place where people can connect with nature, with animals, and with each other.

What better way to deal with the stresses of everyday life than by getting away from it all in a beautiful location where you can rest and relax, breathe clean, fresh air, and experience magnificent sunsets and crystal clear nights?

What better way to improve your physical health than by eating locally-grown nutritious food, taking long, rambling walks over the hills, swimming in the icy ocean or strolling along beaches like this?

What better way to improve your mental health than by learning new skills and pushing your boundaries, experiencing different cultures and meeting interesting, like-minded people, enjoying barbecues on the beach and exchanging stories round the campfire?

What better way to experience an exciting new adventure than with locals who can show you the sights, take you on boat trips and introduce you to an alternative way of living?

What better way to give back to the world than by planting trees, caring for the animals and helping to create an actual heaven on Earth?

Has this piqued your interest? Would you like to make a meaningful contribution to our ambitious project? If so, you can help to:

  • plant trees
  • dig ditches
  • create paths
  • mend fences
  • milk the goats
  • make compost
  • grow vegetables
  • make goat’s cheese
  • construct wooden huts
  • and anything else you like

You can stay for as long or as short as you wish, and you’re welcome to come back whenever you like. This is, after all, going to be quite a long-term undertaking!

Here’s to creating a very special place together!
