Summary - Information about croft work.

While Angus MacNiven was in Mull, the contributor's father managed his crofts. Hector MacPhail, a relative of the MacNivens, worked there as a young man. Cottars were paid to help with the harvest work. Some crofters recompensed them by giving them land to grow potatoes or corn, plus the grazing of a cow.
