Crofts and crofting

A croft is not a house but a unit of agricultural land.

Traditionally, crofting tenants rent their crofts from a landowner, but some crofters may also have bought their crofts. This means it's now possible to buy a croft, or the tenure of a croft, on the open market. This section looks at what you can do if you're interested in renting or buying a croft.
