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 here.

High Volumes of Applications

We currently have a 4 week backlog of applications/enquiries, this is due partly to the high volume of correspondence received and some temporary staffing issues. As a result there will be a delay in acknowledging receipt of your application/answering your enquiry. Be assured that you will hear from us in due course and we appreciate your patience in the meantime.

If you have sent us an enquiry, have you checked our website or ROC Online to see if the answer is there?
