Garths Croft, on the historic island of Bressay, Shetland, is a smallholding specialising in native and heritage breeds. Open all year.
A truly unique opportunity to join local crofter Chris Dyer (featured in Kate Davies blogs) on an exclusive walk through the agricultural year in Shetland, looking at the sheep – ewes, rams and lambs. White/coloured/fleckit and even katmogget! Sift through fleeces from Chris’s flock and see the principal day to day tools and equipment that are used by a Shetland crofter! Chris’s croft is mixed with pigs, turkeys, hens, fruit, vegetables, trees and drystone dykes alongside his beautifully coloured sheep, so there is plenty to see. A walk to nearby sites of historical and natural interest can also be arranged.
