Common Grazings

Common grazings are areas of land used by a number of crofters and others who hold a right to graze stock on that land.  There are over 1000 common grazings covering over 500,000ha across Scotland.

Grazing committees are set up to manage the common grazings.  They are elected by the crofters who use the land and to be regulated (protected by law) the committee must be recorded with the Crofting Commission. 

Find out more about regulated common grazings and also see our leaflet on common grazings.
