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 with certain management responsibilities regarding the common grazings.  They are elected into office by the crofters who share in the common grazings and have responsibility to make and submit grazings regulations to the Commission for approval. Each common grazings has its own grazings regulations which are administered by the grazings committee.
