Photograph of cruck slot in a croft house wall at Gartymore, near Helmsdale. A cruck slot is a slot in which a curved timber, one of a pair, is placed to support the roof.

Gartymore was at the centre of the Crofters War, which swept the Highlands in the late nineteenth century. A number of individuals from the community were instrumental in establishing the inaugural branch of the Land League Movement and forcing through the Crofting Act of 1886.

The Gartymore story exhibition at Timespan in Helmsdale tells the story of crofting families who lived and worked on the east coast of Sutherland.
