We need straw for bedding and oats or barley for stock feeding so we buy that too. About once a month in winter Ronnie comes up to Salen from Falkirk with his lorry and what ever we need.
It's an excellent service and good quality hay. The loaded lorry doesn't have to negotiate the 20 miles of single track road to Kilchoan and its a short trip for us with pick ups and trailers. Another example of the resourcefulness and cooperation needed by people in remote crofting communities.
