2017/18 Crofting Statistics

There are 20,777 crofts entered on the Commission’s ROC of which 14,968 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
