The last of three progammes produced in association with Radio Netherlands, BBC Scotland and RTE Ireland. Radio Scotland’s Kenneth McDonald explores the history of crofting and asks what future lies ahead for this particularly Scottish rural way of life. He talks with those who have run crofts for most of their lives and meets young people who have given up glamourous city lives to go back to the land.
