More Abstracts and Hebridean Impressions


  1. Scriptor,
    Could you tell me please about the rows of pegs or posts and wires in the field (pictured in the abstract post)? McG

  2. The posts are fence posts separating individual crofts. I purposely foreshortened the angle to give that effect. Nevertheless they are quite close together as can be seen from the picture of Upper Bayble on Each fence line defines one croft and the fences are all the same because they were paid for through Crofting grants and all done at the same time irrespective of the fact that each croft was owned by a different person. The sheep in the Upper Bayble photo give an idea of roughly how wide each croft is.


Welcome - comments are nearly always appreciated (the exception being those that simply advertise which don't make it past my moderation so please, don't bother).
