When looking to purchase an owner occupied croft, a person must obtain the approval of the Crofting Commission www.crofting.scotland.gov.uk The Crofting Commission’s aim is to promote the well-being of crofting communities. They will consider several points when an application is received which include the specific needs and long term interests of the community, and the skills a new owner will bring, suitability of the new owner in terms of their experience and plans for the croft. The suitability of the proposed owner is of prime importance and they will be asked to give plans for the working and stocking of the croft as well as previous experience and skills which would be useful to the township. The Commission are able to refuse a purchase if they feel the proposed owner is not suitable.  The croft is subject to an annual “sporting rights” fee of £20pa.
