The Project

Discovering this former croft with it’s social history and ecological importance has become an on-going project to regenerate four acres of mature native woodland in the community of Letters, overlooking Loch Broom. The objective back in 2017 – to create a beautiful and renewed relationship between human habitation and landscape. In harmony with the seasons, the planting of silver birch, wild cherry, elder, guelder rose, rowan, willow and dogwood remains core to establishing a lightly wooded character with grassland and wild flower habitat on the lower, more developed part of the croft while bringing the neglected coppice wood higher up the hill into management.
