Jaymac - first of all, welcome to the forum! I'm afraid that most of us here in the U.S. would be hard pressed to advise you on Scottish agriculture. We do have some members located in France and (I believe) Scotland so perhaps they will read this and chime in.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Welcome to the Cub forum.
What part of Scotland do you live and own land in? Perhaps you could add your location to your profile.

I am going to keep pigs, chickens and grow all my own veg not to sure what else to do but i am allways looking for ideas. I will update my profile and is there a UK forum that any one knows of.
When a question like your comes up from the US, the suggestion usually is made to check with the local agricultural extension service. Maybe the Scottish Ministry of Agriculture can provide some help.
I have a friend that comes from Wales and he says people used to bury thier dead in the bogs,that it would preserve the bodies like mummies.He also said some bogs are about the thickness of a mattress and float on water,so be careful.He says he never remembers anyone groing anything in them,just cutting peet for fuel or mulch and packing materials.

In Maine we would try Blue Berries. I don't know if that is a big crop there, but I bet they or Cranberries or several other lowland type crops would do well. If not many people grow them it would be great produce to introduce.
Welcome Grear to hear about your farming there. Do you have any tractors? If so what are they?

Part of life is falling down, living is getting back up.
My sister and brother in law live in Scotland, but are in Africa for a couple of years... I could swing by and talk Cubs if I ever get over there.
I would say be careful on the dang hillsides, don't want any tractor tipping stories.
