300 Farmers Of Scotland

By (author) Eilidh MacPherson

Every farmer has a story to tell. This book covers the diverse range of Scottish farmers and crofters from those farming the rugged hills of the Highlands to the sandy loams of the Lowlands. From owner occupiers, tenant farmers, share farmers, crofters, farm managers, starter farmers, to new entrants, farming from 10 acres to 31 000 acres – the people are as diverse as the landscapes and environment in which they work. Scotland covers 7.8 million hectares, of that 5.7 million or 73% is farmland, or 79% if common grazing is included. This book has photographs of 300 farmers and interviews with 200 from across the country from Orkney to Berwick and Durness to Stranraer.
