NF7625 : Peat cutting

near to Mingearraidh, Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Great Britain

Peat cutting.
Peat cutting.
Peat is cut for fuel, I was going to say winter fuel, but summers here can be pretty cold too. This is a relatively large scale cutting with some mechanisation. Near Loch nan Caorach. Tracks leading into the interior, and stopping suddenly shown on maps of the Western isles are usually peat roads, built to get the peat out.
