Homage to Eigg (week 2)

In total I spent approximately three and a half weeks on Croft 17. Each were amazing yet distinctly different. Week one was spent laughing and bonding with C and her cousins.

Homage to Croft 17 (week 1)

Croft seventeen is a beautiful thing. Where pickax you can swing, dig a trench while whisling aaanndd that’s about as far as my poetry skills will go on this post. In all seriousness, words cannot express the joy and peace I found during my time on Eigg. From the moment I stepped onto the ferry…
