About Us

The Crofting Commission is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) which operates on a day-to-day basis independently of the government, but for which Scottish Ministers are ultimately responsible.  The Crofting Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 created the Crofting Commission, which came into being on 1 April 2012, taking over from the Crofters Commission.

The Crofting Commission’s principal function is regulating crofting, re-organising crofting, promoting the interests of crofting and keeping under review matters relating to crofting.

Our Vision

To be a guiding regulator that uses its powers to support the crofting system.

Our Purpose

To regulate the crofting system fairly and reasonable to protect it for future generations.

The Commission comprises of six Crofting Commissioners elected from geographic areas in the crofting counties, and three Commissioners appointed by the Scottish Government.  The Convener was appointed by Scottish Minister.  The Commission is supported by a staff of 64, led by a Chief Executive. The Commission is based in Great Glen House, Inverness.
