Scottish Crofting Federation is dedicated to campaigning for crofters and fighting for the future of crofting.

Our mission is to safeguard and promote the rights, livelihoods and culture of crofters and their communities.

Led by our members, SCF engages with agencies and government at local, national and international levels to affect policy on rural development.

We work to preserve and develop crofting through advocacy, training, representation and support, encouraging diversity through new young entrants to crofting.

Welcome to SCF

Working to develop, promote and encourage crofting.

Established and run by crofters themselves, SCF is dedicated to campaigning for crofters and fighting for the future of crofting. By actively engaging with agencies and government at local, national and international levels, we influence policy on rural, agricultural, social, environmental issues.

Originally set up in 1985 as the Scottish Crofters Union, the organisation continues to protect and promote the interests of crofters and the crofting community.

Our team

We represent and safeguard the interests of crofters, their families and communities, their cultural heritage and their legislative rights.

Crofting in Scotland

We promote the environmental, social and cultural benefits of crofting activity and land use as intrinsic aspects of rural development.

Our projects

We raise awareness of crofting through information and education and promote diversity of people, enterprise, skills and expertise.

Why membership is important

The SCF makes a real difference to crofters and their communities, but most of our work costs money. Your support is appreciated.

Membership for an individual starts at £33.25 per year. In return you will receive many benefits, discounts on our publications and much, much more.
