Roger and Gilly Dixon-Spain
Roger and Gilly came to Live on Lismore in 2004 having bought the croft 2 years earlier, after a botched holiday booking that should have taken them to France.
Neither of them had imagined farming nor living on an Island when they moved to the west coast of Scotland. Roger had spent his working life as an industrial farmer in Cambridgeshire on 1500 acres of arable land (without any animals!) and Gilly was a dentist running her own practice focused on prevention and self directed dental health, in the local town. "A farm without animals!", Gilly soon changed that and she and Roger kept a small flock Shropshire Sheep and Tamworth Pigs.
