In 1887 conditions become untenable on a remote island in the Atlantic and the inhabitants leave to live on crofts offered to them on the western shores of Lewis near Carloway. The Islanders have to earn money to pay the rent, buy seed and find the resources to last them until their first harvest. It is one year after the passing of the Crofters' Act, which provides security of tenure, fairer rents and an end to clearings of recent years, but there is still simmering resentment where land is scarce.
