Haymaking at Inverbroom

This photograph shows a group of people haymaking outside a byre at Inverbroom. The group is engaged in making hay stacks. Harvest was an important time in the crofting calendar. Scythes were used to cut the hay and the work was both strenuous and time-consuming. Everyone who was able was involved, and many school log books note that attendance was low during the harvest weeks as children helped with the work. In later years hay would be cut by horse-drawn mowers and by the 1930s vehicles such as tractors had taken over much of the work.
