Croft to Let –  Fair Isle, Shetland


This National Trust for Scotland owned croft and associated house will be available to let in Spring 2012. The house has three-bedrooms and the croft boasts good outbuildings and approximately 14 hectares of croft land with associated common grazing.

Particularly suitable for a young family / couple, who are keen to join small island community of around seventy people.

If you are familiar with crofting and have a secondary vocation which is transposable to this location and/ or are willing to turn your hand to other work which becomes available from time to time i.e. deck hand on boat, airstrip fire crew, various trade works etc. Then you may have the appropriate skill set and ability to run a croft in this marginal but exceptional location while also greatly contributing to the community as a whole

Please write to The National Trust for Scotland, Balnain House, Inverness, IV3 5HR by 20 February 2012 for further information and application details.

If you are not familiar with crofting please speak with The Crofters Commission or visit their website in order to get background information prior to seriously considering an application.
