Survey of the Economic Conditions of Crofting

Economic Conditions of Crofting
Katharine Johnston

Crofters across Scotland will be invited to take part in a survey of the Economic Conditions of Crofting (online, via post or over the phone) over the coming weeks.

The survey is being carried out by Research Resource on behalf of the Scottish Government and will provide valuable information on the uses and financial situation of crofts in 2019-2022.

The information gathered will help to inform future Scottish Government crofting policy development. In addition the Crofting Commission will use the results to help focus resources on the factors which will be of most benefit to crofting.

Your views are extremely important and Scottish Government are keen to hear from as many crofters as possible.

The online survey is now live. Unique links have been sent to applicable crofters. A postal survey will be sent out by Friday 22 July, with responses to be returned by Friday 26 August. Finally, telephone interviews will take place from Friday 2 September.
