Isle Martin is a community owned island and looked after by the Isle Martin Trust. The Croft House is one of the oldest existing buildings on the island, having been recorded in the 1875 Ordinance Survey. It is a traditional drystone lime mortar building providing sleeping accommodation for 6-8 people. We are currently finalising the details of this project with the aim to make the Croft House a more hospitable space to stay and encourage access to the island. The project will also allow for a variety of training and volunteering opportunities.

The aims of the projects are to:

  • Upon completion the building will be suitable for overnight stays, by groups of up to 8 persons.
  • The project will allow for a variety of training and volunteering opportunities.
  • The building will demonstrate traditional building techniques and preserve a sympathetic addition to the island’s landscape and infrastructure.
