Empower Crofting Communities Call at SCF Gathering

Cultural heritage, empowering crofters and valuing the crofting way of life were the main themes at the SCF annual gathering in Dingwall last week. The conference, entitled ‘Crofting culture – it grows on you’ was supported by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and celebrated the cultural richness of crofting communities; in traditional land use and skills, in innovation, in language, in music and in food produced from the croft.

Delegates heard the self-proclaimed “Crofting Minister”, Michael Russell, contribute to the theme of empowerment, when he pledged government support for the direction desired by crofting communities. He announced a continuation of the Crofting Community Development Scheme to assist in drawing up community development plans.
