Join us on our traditional Scottish farm to get a glimpse into crofting life. We are a working croft and aim to give you a real feel of the crofting life, which is unique to the Scottish Highlands. Plan in 2 hours for a guided walk around the animals. While enjoying the stunning views and scenery, learn about crofting and local history, from the Neolithic to the Clearances. There will be plenty of photo opportunities with our 4-legged friends and stunning surroundings. In June/July the sheep will be shorn, so if you would like to try your hand at this traditional crofting chore, Tom, who is a professional shearer, will give you an introduction. The ponies will love being fussed over. We will visit our herd of native cows before feeding and stroking the pigs and the chickens, where you can collect your own eggs if you're lucky, and - depending on whether there are any - the pet lambs will need their bottle, too. We finish our tour with a working sheep dog demonstration to show you our collie Tib in action with the sheep.
After that, we'll deserve a hearty homemade soup and bread, followed by fresh scones and shortbread. Feel free to fire away with any questions you have regarding the animals or crofting during our walk or over our cuppa afterwards
* If you fancy staying on the Croft: We also have AirB'n'B accommodation available.

My husband Tom and I have worked our croft (traditional Scottish farm) in the Scottish Highlands since 2014. Here we breed and raise sheep, cows and keep chickens, mainly native and rare breeds. There are also ponies, pigs, a cat and dogs. Tom is a professional sheep shearer and we have travelled the world shearing sheep together before starting our own farming enterprise. We love people experiencing this beautiful place and our friendly animals, as we believe that access to nature and animals is crucial for mental and general wellbeing - for children and adults alike. Tom and I are passionate about small-scale, ethical food production and animal husbandry and enjoy sharing our knowledge, experience and surroundings with everybody who loves to experience farmlife or even those keen to start their own smallholding

The croft is off the beaten track, yet within easy reach. Our tour will take place on the farm and all the animals on the croft will be covered. We finish with the chickens, where you can collect your own eggs - depending on availability - before we enjoy a well deserved cuppa and homemade fresh scones and shortbread together in the house. If you would like to stay with us, please message me for the link to our AirB'n'B accommodation.

We had a wonderful experience with Steffi, Tom and the kids. Steffi gave us a very hands on tour of the croft and shared her knowledge and experience of running the croft. We also learned about local history and land marks. It was very comfortable and easy going and we joined the family for a delicious lunch after the tour. 5 star. don't hesitate to give it a go.

We had a great morning on the croft with Steffi and her family. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived, learned lots about croft life, loved meeting all the animals and had delicious lunch too. A great experience and definitely a holiday highlight! :-)

Absolutely great experience. Loved every moment we spent there. The location was incredible, the animals were friendly and cute! But by far the best part was the hosting. Stefanie and Tom did a great job not only allowing us all to interact with the animals but also taught us a lot about the history of the area and the animals. You can tell it's a true passion of theirs and that their heart is in the welfare of their animals and the land. We felt welcomed and comfortable from beginning to end, so thank you for the warm welcome, delicious food and the unique experience.

We all had an amazing time with Steffi and her family, and all their animals. We were a group of adults, teens and children, and all loved it. Steffi is very knowledgeable about where she lives and the crofting lifestyle, and communicated all this in a way that was clear, interesting and conveyed her passion. The whole family were very welcoming - the homemade lunch at the end was delicious, and a very nice finishing touch to our experience. We all enjoyed the time to meet new people, and speak at more length about the area and crofting with other guests and our hosts.

We’re just back from this tour at Steffi & Tom’s Croft. We loved every minute - it was great to hear about the area, meet the animals and see them in action! Steffi’s lovely, and really knows her stuff, and Tom & Tib the sheepdog working together to herd the sheep was super-cool to see. Lunch of homemade/home grown soup and fresh bread plus baking was a total treat. I highly recommend you include this tour if you’re visiting the area, for a genuine, friendly and interesting experience. Thanks again Steffi!

A wonderful day out for me and my son, we had a lot of fun learning about the local history and 'helping' with the animals. We fed baby lambs, fed the chickens, brushed some very friendly ponies, attempted to make friends with the cows and admired the skills of the herding dog! Altogether a lovely day!
