The Crofting Commission is working to secure the future of crofting in Scotland by creating and promoting a well regulated crofting system that positively contributes to the sustainability of rural communities.
Crofting is a system of landholding which is unique to Scotland. A croft is relatively small agricultural land holding which is normally held in tenancy. Crofts range in size with an average croft being 5ha.
The Commission is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) which operates on a day to day basis independently of the Scottish Government, but for which Scottish Ministers are ultimately responsible.
