Register of Crofts (ROC)

The ROC is a public list* of crofts which contains basic information about the croft and the people associated with it.  Please note that some crofts are simply grazings shares that do not have in-bye croft land associated with them.  There are just over 20,500 crofts entered on the Commission’s Register of Crofts (ROC) of which around 72% are tenanted and the remainder are owned. 

The ROC does not contain boundary information or maps for crofts as this is held by Registers of Scotland.

The information in our online ROC will be updated every 24 hours.  It is important to note however, that some changes do not take effect immediately due to timelines prescribed by Crofting Legislation and these would be explained in any relevant decision letter that has been issued.

If you consider any of the information is not correct please inform us by completing the appropriate form or contact us at  Alternatively you can write to us at the address in the footer below.

* The Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993 states the information contained in the Register of Crofts (ROC) must be open to public scrutiny.
