 Registers of Scotland - Crofting Register

The Crofting Register is map based and provides a definitive record of the extent of, and interest in, land within crofting tenure in Scotland. In addition to showing the boundaries of land, the register also contains information on the crofter, owner-occupier crofter and/or the landlord of the registered croft. The Crofting Register is maintained by the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland, although the application for registration is made in the first instance to the Crofting Commission who will check the information contained in or accompanying the registration application against the information contained in the Commission’s Register of Crofts.

Your application to register the croft on the Crofting Register must be accompanied by a map showing the boundaries of the croft along with the registration fee (cheques should be made payable to "Crofting Commission"). All maps must be clear and legible. Maps that do not meet the required standard will result in your application being returned. Maps that meet this standard can be acquired from local authorities, architects and surveyors and distributors of Ordnance Survey maps which can be found by searching the Internet.

A copy of the registration form and accompanying guidance notes can be found on Registers of Scotland website.

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.
