Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspections Division

Provides crofter housing advice to registered crofters and administers the croft house grant scheme: Crofting tenure requires the crofter to provide their own house although they do not own the land on which the house is built and this can preclude access to conventional forms of housing finance. The purpose of the Scheme is to improve and maintain the standards of crofter housing with the aim of attracting and retaining people in the more remote areas of the Highlands and Islands.
