A common grazing is an area of land that can be used by a number of crofters and others who have the right to graze there.
You can't create a new common grazing if:
- any part of the land is tenanted or occupied by a cottar
- the land's already registered as a croft
- it's next to a croft, or shares a boundary with one
Visit the Crofting Commission website for more information on who can apply for common grazing, and how to submit your application.
