paulb Posted August 22, 2010 Report Share Posted August 22, 2010 an informal chat will do with the crofter commision. your going to have a fair bit of paperwork from them anyway. i doubt you would get the planning folks out to fetlar for that kind of visit. i would also speak to the rspb if its them running the scheme. a 100hectre croft is very big. you will need to give the crofters commission an idea of what your planning. they can turn you down if they don't like your ideas. lets see if its a tenented croft there is a grant for work on the house. there are grants for things like fencing barns ect. the is also grants for fertelizer and lime again the rspb may need to be spoken too. there are even grants available for fixing the road.that a very big area to be worked by horses. oh yes there are also grants for growing crops. hopefully there may even be a single farm payment knocking about. remember a crofter was only ever intended to keep a family alive you will not make a living even from that area. how much of it is moorland and does it have peat banks. this would save a lot in heating costs. if itsDA HAA, FUNZIE, FETLAR, ZE2 9DJ it looks good. we fancied it to. get a very good valuation done. don't over did. remember that once you have made an offer you have made a contract. so go very carefully. the ruined haa would make a very good project for someone but its bound to be listed so more paperwork.
