Follow a family of four on our continued adventures as crofters on the Scottish Isle of Rum where we are building a new life from a bare field up. Off-grid, low-impact, self sufficient, permaculture inspired living in a wild and beautiful island with a small community with big ideas. The wandering may have stopped but we'll never lose the sense of wonder.
We have very little internet access and mobile phone signal is very patchy. We are having all sorts of wobbles about quite how the static is going to make it onto the croft.
we're here :)
This is where we live now
We spent our first day helping with a beach clean up over on Kilmory Beach (north tip of the island) which is just beautiful. We saw deer and looked across at Skye and Canna.
Other exciting news includes the addition to the Wondering Wanderers of Bonnie:
12 weeks old. Border Collie.
Isn't she gorgeous?! We collected her on the way up, in Fort William. We're only 3 days in to dog ownership and 3/4 of us have never had a dog before so we have as much to learn as she does but so far she is the perfect addition to the family. Full of energy, spirit and a nose for adventure. I think we're going to be very happy together.
Our next big challenge is the arrival of our static caravan on Wednesday... one step at a time!
