Securing the
Future of Crofting


An Assessor is a person appointed by the Crofting Commission with knowledge on crofting, who lives in the crofting areas and assists the Commission on matters related to crofting in that area.  An Assessor is also a point of contact for crofters in their area to provide advice and guidance on crofting matters.

A new panel of Assessors was appointed on 1st November 2012. Their 5-year period of office will continue to provide the Crofting Commission with a highly valued link with crofting communities.  The network covers an extensive area with around 100 parishes represented.

The Crofting Commission held their second Assessors Seminar on 19 & 20 November 2014, and it provided a real opportunity for the whole of the Assessors network to get together with Commissioners, staff from the Crofting Commission and staff from the area SGRPID offices, to compare notes and discuss the relevant crofting issues of the day.  Download the Assessors Seminar Report to find out more.
