In the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, life on the Isle of Harris has been largely influenced by the practice of crofting, a small-scale agricultural tradition that has been passed down for generations.

In this short film by Joya Berrow, follow the quiet life of crofter Donald John MacInnes as he tends to his sheep and cows in the staggeringly beautiful landscape, capturing a different – and disappearing – rhythm of life.
