Crofting makes a valuable contribution to the economic and social development of Scotland.
There are 21,186 crofts entered on the Commission’s Register of Crofts (ROC) of which 15,137 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
