Crofting Schemes in the Uists and Barra
This book examines in fine detail, for the first time, each of the land settlement schemes which were implemented between 1900 and World War II.
And, in 2006, some 93,000 acres of land in South Uist, Eriskay and Benbecula were bought and transferred into community ownership – the largest single purchase of its kind in Scotland at the time of writing.
Conclusions are drawn as to the impacts of these initiatives on the long term future of these southern Outer Hebridean isles.
