Crofting

Colonsay Community Development Company has 5 crofts, 2 woodland crofts at Uragaig and 3 near Port Mor, at Lower Kilchattan.

All 5 Crofts have tenants who live and work on the island. It was with the support of the Scottish Land Fund that CCDC was able to acquire this land, for the purpose of providing crofting opportunities to individuals & families.

The smallest of the Lower Kilchattan crofts is just 4 acres, The Wee Croft. Taken on by a family in 2020, it has a developing produce garden and native broadleaf trees planted with the support of the Woodland Trust for shelter and biodiversity.

Walkers are welcome through the croft and across the community-owned common grazing, provided that dogs are kept on a lead for the safety of hens & sheep. The shared grazing is rugged, with spectacular sea views, dramatic sea bird cliffs at Druim nam Faoileann and archaeological features to find in the landscape.
