Ever since its publication in 2007, Eric MacLeod's memoir of his young family's years reconstructing and living in one of the most remote crofthouses in Scotland has remained one of our most popular titles, selling mostly in Scotland but travelling far and worldwide thanks to the area's many visitors. Sandstone Press is now happy and proud to present a second edition, complete with an additional chapter bringing the story of the family and the house bang up to date.
Eric MacLeod was born in Dingwall in the Highlands. His early post graduate career was in Accountancy in London, but he made a life change at the age of thirty to become a crofter and self-employed in a variety of ways. Since leaving the croft he has worked as a Business Adviser across the Highlands. He has returned to the area of his birth with his wife Ruth of 37 years and has two daughters and three grandchildren.
