Gaelic Language Plan (GLP)

Gaelic and crofting are intimately connected. Indeed, it could be said that crofting is the strongest bastion of the Gaelic language; and that Gaelic in its turn has strengthened and supported crofting, helping to anchor it through many changes.

The Crofting Commission has, of course, a statutory duty under the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 to play its part in promoting the language, but the unique link with crofting gives us an additional responsibility as well as enthusiasm for this task.

We have a commitment to the National Gaelic Language Plan and the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005.

This Plan sets out a formal structure for our support of the Gaelic language, with new initiatives and clear targets and there is a strong commitment throughout the Commission to see Gaelic thrive.

UPDATE FOR CROFTERS

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 info@crofting.gov.scot. 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.
