Ardnamurchan celebrates a new crofting dawn with training course success

An area of north-west Scotland which became well-known a quarter of a century ago for depopulation and the erosion of one of its crofting communities is this month celebrating the completion of the Scottish Crofting Federation's introductory course, attended by more than 20 crofters of all levels of expertise.

'Night Falls on Ardnamurchan', a minor classic book by the Highland writer Alasdair Maclean which was published in 1984, famously described the decline of the crofting township of Sanna in the west-coast peninsula of Ardnamurchan in Lochaber.

Yet earlier this month that image, of Ardnamurchan's twilight, was replaced with a very different picture as 24 students completed the SCF course in the township of Kilchoan, not far from Sanna.
