        Charlie MacGillivray, whose rent was set to go up from £30 to almost £300 a year
        Doesn't sound too onerous to me. Maybe Charlie needs to dust the moths out of his wallet.

          The MacDonald lairds have form/history on such matters, notably the 1882 "Battle of the Braes"
          http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/he...ances-1-465092
          - and crofting leases are different from almost any other form of lease or tenancy... normal rules don't apply...
          http://www.crofting.scotland.gov.uk/...s-Crofting.asp

          If ever offered a croft as an investment: Don't!

              Is your rental house price in a bubble?

              Not news to me, but perhaps of interest to some of you:

                      I don't know if any of you guys watch Ultimate Handyman's DIY videos on Youtube. This is a spoof one he made recently as a Snickers advert:



                      I sent it to my friend who's nationality I'm not allowed to mention. He said he only realised it was a joke when the shelves fell down.

                          You ARE allowed to mention friend's nationality.

                          It is a WELL KNOWN fact that Canadians and French have no sence of humour.
                          French transpose words, such as, we say "blue pen", they say it as "pen blue", so it HELPS us understand why someone would not understand a joke, and also the language barrier.
