Croft for sale

Do you want to live on six acres in an outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt part of Scotland? Do you want to live somewhere that is both remote and
connected, where both solitude and community can easily be found? Are you attracted to the challenge and simplicity of living off-grid, in a place where you park your car and either walk three and a half miles along a mountain footpath to reach your home, or cross Little Loch Broom in a boat?
If the answer to these questions is Yes, then
Guardian Croft on the Scoraig peninsula may be for
you.  More in this pdf
Phone me, Andrew Rivett, on 01559 362350 between 9am and 9pm.

email settings change June 2014

The host server has moved again and so people with email accounts may most likely need to fiddle with their settings to get up to date.

You can use the server for both incoming or outgoing without SSL although it is less secure.
In this case the incoming POP server uses port 110.
Outgoing SMTP server uses port 26.
You will need to enter your password.

If you want to set IMAP or SSL settings it’s probably best you log in to the Eirbyte link on the menu above (under email in the black menu bar) and click on “configure mail client”.
