Crofters Commission

The Crofting Commission (Scottish Gaelic: Coimisean nan Croitearachd) on 1st April 2012 took the place of the Crofters Commission (Scottish Gaelic: Coimisean nan Croitearan), as the statutory regulator for crofting in Scotland. Based in Inverness, it is an executive non-departmental public body of the Scottish Government.

The first Crofting Commission was established in 1886. The modern Crofters Commission was established by the Crofters (Scotland) Act 1955. The name of the Commission changed to the Crofting Commission in 2012 following the coming into force of the Crofting Reform (Scotland) Act 2010.
