Island Women and Crofting Isle of Lewis

The Gearrannan Social History Project in the Isle of Lewis has produced two information leaflets Gearrannan Women and Crofting in Gearrannan. The 2017-18 research project comprised of interviews, exhibition, a lively Facebook page and information sharing events.

The social history research subjects for a crofting community on the West coast of the Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides were crofting, animals, family and village life.

The project was funded by the National Lottery and project manager was Dr Mary Macleod. Field officer Magaidh Smith worked on the project October 2017 to March 2018.
