History

Original ruin, byre  and corrugated iron houseMy family has occupied the Croft for around 200 years. Donald Ferguson (my father) inherited the house as a young boy when his father was killed in the First World War.

The corrugated iron house was built after the war and was inhabited until 1997 by my aunt Morag Buchanan who was the last surviving member of the previous generation.

New build 2001I inherited the croft in 1999 and had to demolish the original black house along with the byre and the corrugated iron house as they were beyond repair.
I decided to build a new Croft house, one that would evoke the principles of the original black house design that people used on Skye for generations but with a contemporary twist for modern and comfortable living.
