Jonathan: Yesterday I completed making this new hill gate. It will allow us to move our sheep direct between our own croft and the common grazings. We won’t need to to drive them on a mile-long detour across others’ crofts. This is going to be essential once the croft is fully fenced. It was hard work doing this gate – but mostly of the hard work was in getting the tools and materials up to the fence, across very rough grass, rocky outcrops, bogs and one hell of a climb! Next is to start work extending the croft boundary fences up to the hill fence – by far the hardest work I’ll have done on the croft, after building the house.
