Crofters say SNH Report Provides Evidence of Agricultural Policy Failure

The Scottish Crofting Federation claim that a new report by Scottish Natural Heritage, which details the negative effects of undergrazing on the ecology of crofting areas, provides evidence that Government policies have been ‘killing off’ crofting.

The SNH report analyses the views of crofters and environmentalists in three areas of Scotland who were asked to comment on the impacts to local habitats caused by the decline in hill farming over the last decade. The report focuses on three hill and upland areas: the south of the Isle of Skye, the north Highlands and the west Borders.
