Northern Isles

A crofting experience in the Scottish Highlands and Islands

Crofting is small-scale sustainable agriculture in the remote north, west and islands of Scotland. This makes crofts ideal places for holidays. You can share the wide open spaces, clear skies, outdoor lifestyle and natural environment with those who work the land and maintain the old traditions and culture.

Couple this with local food production and you have the right recipe for a wonderful holiday. Relax, unwind and enjoy the scenery. 

These holiday cottages and businesses are on working crofts, where the owners work the land and keep the heritage alive. They will welcome you and tell you where to eat well, walk, fish and explore. Many have their own croft produce for sale.

Click on the tiles to find a suitable property. You could soon be sharing the beauty of the Scottish Highlands and Islands and its history.

Scottish Crofting Federation members can advertise their produce, holiday cottages and businesses here.
