Crofting makes a valuable contribution to the economic and social development of Scotland.
2019/20 Crofting Statistics
There are 21,186 crofts entered on the Commission’s Register of Crofts (ROC) of which 15,137 are tenanted and the remainder are owned. When a crofter purchases their croft land and the grazings shares pertaining to that croft remain held in tenancy, the shares are “deemed” to be a tenanted croft in their own right, and as such have a separate entry in the ROC. You can check the details of a croft through our ROC Online
