Air An Lot is expanding. Starting Spring 2014, I will be offering croft tourism. Whether you want to see and interact with the animals, have a go at peat-cutting and other traditional activities or just sample life in an island community, I’ll be able to provide that for you – in English and in Gaelic.
There will be a bit of rebranding on the website soon enough, along with detailed information about what I will be offering, but I just wanted to get word out there.
Croft life has been my passion since an early age; my first memories are of feeding the sheep with my grandfather, and I’ve been thinking about doing this for quite a while. I might as well do something I love and try and make a living out of it. I will continue to work full-time, as well as carry on with the freelance media work, but my job only runs until December of this year, so I have to start thinking about what I am going to do long-term.
I will be mainly targeting visitors to the islands but I am more than happy to accommodate any requests from closer to home. Group visits will also be welcome. I have a good idea what type of activities I will be offering, but always willing to listen to suggestions. 2014 is going to be a great year!
