Creating a new common grazings

Common Grazings are areas of land used by a number of crofters and others who hold a right to graze on that land.

A new common grazing cannot be created if:

  • any part of the land is tenanted or occupied by a cottar
  • it is next to or shares a boundary with a croft
  • the land is already registered as a croft.

UPDATE FOR CROFTERS

Given last night’s announcement from the UK and Scottish Government the Crofting Commission’s office is now effectively closed.

Working without an office base presents us with many practical challenges and we will not be able to offer a normal service. We cannot deal with any new applications for the time being, though we will keep this under review. Meantime, our staff who continue to work from home, will process existing applications as far as possible.

You can continue to contact us by email info@crofting.gov.scot. Messages received in this inbox will find their way to the right person.

We cannot take phone calls on our normal office number or respond to any voicemails that are left on that number. Instead we have added mobile numbers to the Contact Us page of this website so crofters can continue to speak with us.

These are certainly unprecedented times and the proposals outlined above may change but we will keep you updated if they do.
