FOI Request: 107892

Received: 09 December 2020

Division: Serving Crofting

Status: Completed

Request for a list of vacant crofts in Argyll, Ross-shire, Skye and Lochaber area.

Decision: Release 22 December 2020

While we can provide the number of vacant crofts within a specific area we are unable to provide an itemised list. The number of crofts that are vacant legally under Section 23(10) of the Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993, is not the same as vacant physically i.e. empty. As many crofts that are legally vacant, the owner lives on and uses the croft, but because the owner is not an "owner-occupier crofter" in terms of the legislation, the croft is classified legally as vacant.
