Crofting plays a vital role in maintaining the population in remote rural areas, it provides a secure base for the development of small businesses and maintains and supports a range of unique habitats.
Crofters may benefit from conventional agricultural and environmental schemes and from EC funded programmes.
The Scottish Government provides specific support to crofting counties through the following schemes
Other support and information may be accessable via the links below
Forestry Commission – Woodland Crofts
SG Rural Housing Fund
The Highlands Small Communities Housing Trust
HIE – Scottish Land Fund
HIE – Community Broadband
The Scheme is open to groups of at least 2 crofters within the crofting counties and provides good quality, high health bulls in areas where it is impractical to keep bulls and over winter them and where no alternative hiring facility exists.
