Cliff top lazy beds
Cliff top lazy beds
The stripes in the ground are evidence of former cultivation in lazy beds - also known as run rig or ridge and furrow cultivation. Ditches were dug and the soil the piled up to form ridges - this provided a greater depth of soil for planting, and improved drainage. These lazy beds are close to the deserted and ruined township of Idrigill. The water is Loch Bracadale.
