Aspects of Land - Autumn 2015

Perfect day – why it's always the right time to examine your business

Rural life can often be portrayed as the idyll, but for those who are at the mercy of summer droughts, or a savage drop in milk prices, that can be far from the truth. In fact, in many ways we share similar frustrations to our urban cousins: poor broadband speeds, a lack of housing, how to raise capital for new investment.

This issue has a look at some of these concerns, and also at the work of the charity Countryside Learning that helps to spread an understanding of life in the countryside, for which we have been actively fundraising for. If you have any questions raised by this publication, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

The all round sporting dream on the Isle of Lewis
24 May 2017

One of the last truly wild and unspoilt natural environments left in Britain, the Isle of Lewis, is a land of stunning coastline and dramatic landscapes.  Its standing stones, deserted beaches and, at times, Caribbean-blue sea, have captured the imagination since Neolithic times, and now there is an opportunity to be part of it, with the sale of Barvas Estate.
