WALK – Starting at Isle Ornsay we will explore the crofting township of Camuscross and beyond. Using historical archive material we will examine the way land is owned, mapped and controlled and how this is visible in the landscape. We will examine the way crofting has developed through time, comparing contemporary land use with past and reflecting on future uses, all with reference to this crofting township.

TERRAIN – This is on tarmac road through the crofting township of Camuscross, followed by walking through the old crofting land on a path, which then reduces to a sheep track. There are some boggy sections and walking through bracken. We will walk towards Camus Barabhaig. Walking boots required.
