Skye Crofters

circa 1910: Two crofters work their land on the Isle of Skye with the Cas Chrom, or crooked spade. The isle of Skye, in north west Scotland, is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, separated from the mainland by a narrow channel. Skye is a rugged island dominated by the Cuillin Hills. In addition to fishing, farming and the production of whisky, tourism now provides an important source of income for the island. Since 1995 Skye has been connected to the mainland by a road bridge.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the early 1900s on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. In this snapshot of history, we witness two resilient crofters diligently tending to their land using the traditional Cas Chrom, or crooked spade. The rugged beauty of Skye is evident as it stretches out behind them, with the majestic Cuillin Hills dominating the landscape. The Isle of Skye has long been known for its fishing, farming, and whisky production. However, over time tourism has become a vital source of income for this remote island community. This image serves as a reminder that while modernization has brought progress and connectivity through infrastructure like the road bridge linking Skye to the mainland since 1995, there is still an appreciation for preserving traditions and heritage. In this photograph from Hulton Archive/Getty Images, we see both male and female roles represented in these occupations. It showcases how everyone played a part in sustaining their way of life on this open countryside amidst Europe's natural wonders. As we admire this historical moment frozen in time within our own homes or spaces at Fine Art Storehouse's print collection, let us reflect on the resilience and dedication exhibited by these Skye Crofters who worked tirelessly to cultivate their land against all odds.
