Creating a new croft

If the Commission consider it is in the public interest, and there would be social and economic benefits, land can now be designated as croft land, within the existing crofting counties or in the designated new areas for crofting which are:

  • The local  government area of Highland that is outwith the existing crofting counties
  • The local government area of Moray
  • The local government area of Argyll and Bute, the parishes of Kingarth, North Bute and Rothesay
  • The local government area of North Ayrshire, the islands of Arran (including Holy Island and Pladda), Great & Little Cumbrae.

 

Please ensure you submit your Registers of Scotland (RoS) Registration Application form along with your application, if required.

Please note that when you are completing the Registration Application for RoS you are required to advise them of persons who own/occupy any adjacent croft or land, as our ROC is not mapped based the Commission cannot assist you with this information.

Backlogs

We are still experiencing a backlog of applications/enquiries, this is due partly to the high volume of correspondence received and some temporary staffing issues. Although we are making progress there may still be a delay in acknowledging receipt of your application/answering your enquiry. Be assured that you will hear from us in due course and we appreciate your patience in the meantime.

If you have sent us an enquiry, have you checked our website or ROC Online to see if the answer is there?
