Ten crofters have received £353,000 from
Grants to improve or build new homes in some of Scotland’s most remote and marginal communities have been awarded to 10 crofters.
The Croft House Grants scheme aims to retain and attract people to rural and remote areas, and the latest round of funding totals £353,002.
Since the scheme was launched in 2007, more than £22.1 million has been awarded to 1,033 families and individuals in rural and island communities.
Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said: “Crofters have been working hard throughout the pandemic contributing to the long-term sustainability of our rural and island communities. The future of these areas depends on our ability to attract and retain people, particularly young families.”
