Photo journal: Life on a croft

As part of a series on housing and ways of life in the UK, Peter and Alex Dodge talk about living on a Scottish croft.

"This is not an 'alternative lifestyle', it's the traditional lifestyle, and it's not dead yet," says Peter Dodge.

Peter, 51, his wife Alex, 39, and their children live in Shetland, Northern Isles. When Alex took on the croft tenancy, they became the 10th generation of her family to occupy the smallholding, which clings to the edge of the islandís rugged coast.
