There are very few old-fashioned thatched cottages to be seen today in the Highlands. A hundred years or so ago thatched houses were very much a part of the Highland scene and within their walls, by the light of the peat fire – the crofters of the Islands kept alive the songs and stories which have made the Hebrides famous throughout the world.
Warm, sturdy and economical of scarce materials, the croft house was admirably suited to the landsacpe and the climate. It embodied the principles of streamlining hundreds of years before scientists thought of the idea, with the result that it could stand up to the worst of the winter gales.\
