Request for information on croft Tornabrach. Who were the tenants before 1954 Mr A Cameron took it over then. And any social history , letters from neighbours expressing an interest in the croft, Where he original house was.

Decision: Partial Release 09 December 2019

In this instance an exemption under EIRs applies to some of the information requested. The exemption falls under 'Regulation 11 - Personal Data' where release of this information would be in breach of data protection principles. Information that falls under this category has therefore not been released. Please also note that the Crofting Commission does not hold records pre-1955. It may be that the Estate Office or the National Library of Scotland may hold this this information. I enclose a disk containing a copy of the information requested in PDF format. Please contact me if you have any difficulty accessing this information.



Given last night’s announcement from the UK and Scottish Government the Crofting Commission’s office is now effectively closed.

Working without an office base presents us with many practical challenges and we will not be able to offer a normal service. We cannot deal with any new applications for the time being, though we will keep this under review. Meantime, our staff who continue to work from home, will process existing applications as far as possible.

You can continue to contact us by email Messages received in this inbox will find their way to the right person.

We cannot take phone calls on our normal office number or respond to any voicemails that are left on that number. Instead we have added mobile numbers to the Contact Us page of this website so crofters can continue to speak with us.

These are certainly unprecedented times and the proposals outlined above may change but we will keep you updated if they do.
