16”x12” charcoal on Strathmore. Scars of runrigs left on the land leaving the evidence of old land tenure in the crofting communities. A form of dividing and management of community land before crofting tenures came into practice.....I think. I was walking at the Isle of Whithorn last week and there is evidence there of old runrigs. The site is on a cliff top over looking the sea, I’ve seen the same evidence on the land above the sea in the township of Clachtoll were I lived in the west highlands......how they managed to grow crops on these exposed sites.
