Achentoot Permaculture

fledgling permaculture based home in the far North of Scotland
Started: 
2017

We're a fledgling permaculture based home in the far North of Scotland. We're members of a small community of individuals with a permaculture interest (with and without PDCs) in this patch (Caithness and Sutherland) in which we've formed a self-help group. We have a Facebook Group here  and a Facebook Messenger Group here

The croft is 10 to 12 acres on the edge of the flow-country so wet and peaty but rich in wildlife.  We're in a self-build (purchased from builder/owner) straw-baled house, mostly off-grid.  We're developing from the perspective of wildlife and bio-diversity but retro-fitting a forest garden into the existing young woodland to incorporate food and medicine.  We've shelter-belts, hugelculture, no-dig beds and (eventually) a poly-tunnel in place.   

 

How to arrange a visit: 
Email is probably best
Sustainable transport options: 
Difficult as we're 50mins walk from the nearest bus stop but doable. Best ring and we'll pick you up in the Nissan Leaf.
