Glencanisp Lodge

This was the first gathering of young crofters and aspiring young crofters, with the purpose of addressing the question: “What do we want crofting to look like in 2020 and beyond?”

Priority was given to young crofters and aspiring crofters and there were also older crofters attending to bring their experience and wisdom to the deliberations. Officials were invited to participate as this was an opportunity for young crofters to be able to have discussions with those who formulate policies that affect crofting.

The event was hosted by the SCF and Crofting Connections.
