Known by many as the Last Wilderness on mainland Britain, Knoydart peninsula is basically an island. With no drivable roads, its accessibility is limited to boat or foot but it is this inaccessibility that keeps it preserved. It is home to one of the most beautifully rugged landscapes in the United Kingdom.
Life in Knoydart is different to life on the mainland. Not only distanced by geographical location, the community also lives off-the-grid from mainland electricity, running our own hydroelectric system. With no shops on the peninsula, residents order groceries from the mainland which they are sent over by boat throughout the week.
At times it feels like we live on the edge of a world, isolated and detached - and this way of life is certainly not without challenges. But this community is strengthened by a reliance on each other and a collective dedication to remote living. A love of our home binds us together beyond any differences we have.
This project is a celebration of small communities all over the world who work together for a life less ordinary.
