Eigg Crofting Development Plan

In 2023, the Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust together with Eigg’s crofters and residents agreed on a shared vision for the future of crofting on Eigg:

“To revitalise the Eigg Crofting Community, by encouraging increased use of the croft land, reducing absenteeism and promoting the retention of community owned croft land, with a long-term objective to establish and maintain greater access to crofting”. 

To realise this vision, the Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust and Eigg’s crofting community wish to invite tenders to deliver a Crofting Development Plan.

The development plan should provide clear guidance on how crofting can be shaped and supported into the future. It should demonstrate how the ambitions and challenges Eigg’s resident crofters and stakeholders express during consultation might be supported.  It is anticipated these may be the best use of croft land, encouraging and supporting new entrants, diversifying income, and collaborative working to mitigate the impact of climate change.
