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.
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.
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 £34 per year. In return you will receive many benefits, discounts on our publications and much, much more.
