Crofting's New Voices
15 mins | 2015 | Scotland
Produced & Directed by Robin Haig
A documentary about a new generation of inspiring young crofters.
Filmed during the Scottish Crofting Federation Young Crofters Gathering in Assynt, northern Highlands, a group gathers in to organise for change. They value their connections to the land; they want to work the land and make their homes there. But against them stands the market economy: unaffordable land and housing, and a lack of employment opportunities in the rural communities they love. Meet the new generation of young crofters.
