Mull, an Island of Few Crofts
Only eight land settlement schemes were implemented on Mull between the two World Wars. And they yielded only 35 new croft holdings and five enlargements of existing ones.
Yet Mull is Scotland's fourth largest island after Lewis, Skye and Shetland, where large numbers of new crofts were created and existing ones enlarged during the same period. Why such a difference?
This book examines, for the first time, Mull’s land settlement record in detail and puts forward explanations why so little activity took place on the island.
