Crofting law, Crofting Estates and Crofting tenancies

Crofting law is a specialist area, requiring reliable, expert advice at the earliest possible opportunity. You may be purchasing croft land in Scotland, taking on a crofting tenancy, or selling a crofting estate.

The complexity of the law surrounding croft land and crofting means that you cannot afford to take chances or cut corners.

Clear advice on crofting law

Our aim is to help our clients to realise their goals with minimum fuss, stress and expense. We provide clear, understandable advice on all aspects of crofting law arising under the Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993 and the more recent amending Acts of 2007, 2010 and 2013.

Benefits we bring

Our extensive experience in this area of law sets us apart from our competitors, as does the fact we can draw on the experience of other colleagues within a full-service firm. We work closely with our litigation team, with their expertise in applications to the Scottish Land Court, and also with our renewable energy team to advise on how crofting law affects proposed wind and hydro-electric developments.

Our Agric and Rural team is rated by both Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500. 

Our approach to fees

We don't want you to be surprised by the final bill we produce – that's why we will endeavour at the outset of every transaction to provide you with a fixed fee quote to give you clarity and certainty on costs. Where we can't do this, we will provide you with an estimated charge, which we will aim to convert to a fixed fee quote once the scope of the transaction becomes clearer.
