The Highland Village, Iona, Cape Breton

This croft at the Highland Village is much like the homes our Scottish ancestors left behind when they came from The Isle of Lewis to settle in Cape Breton. My people came from Crawlista, Lewis. We visited there several times and saw the remains of the croft where our people had lived. The roof was gone but the stone walls were intact.
