Crofting exists in areas where agricultural production and investment costs are traditionally high. It is widely regarded as a socially, culturally and environmentally important activity, for the sense of identity it provides, the landscape it produces and the systems of communal working it supports.

The aims of this project will be to

  • provide practical training events and sharing of knowledge
  • facilitate the sourcing of appropriate advice and support for crofters
  • establish two demonstration crofts across the Coigach & Assynt area
  • provide a community mapping assistance and use GIS technology
  • help/advice on bracken/rush control
  • access to AECS/CAGS and any other schemes
