Eriskay ponies, used by crofters on the tiny island of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides, very nearly became extinct.
A photo from a new book, Everything you wanted to know about the Countryside...(but didn't dare ask) by Jill Mason. Jill describes many countryside topics including farming, leisure, forestry, conservation, agriculture and more.
The photos that illustrate Jill's facts are taken by David Mason. A great location to visit for the adventurous traveller and a book that will inspire UK countryside travel.
