A new book on crofting law was launched this past week at a reception held in the main law library of the Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow.

A Practical Guide to Crofting Law’ has been written by crofting law expert Brian Inkster.

The book is an introduction to crofting law for those with an interest in it or who may touch upon it. Whether that is lawyers, law students, land agents, crofters, landlords or anyone else with an interest in crofting law.

The book covers the main issues briefly and concisely, aiming to highlight the complexity of crofting law and the pitfalls and traps that await the uninitiated. The aim is that readers will, as a result, be better versed in the basics of crofting law.

Welcoming the publication of the book Patrick Krause, Chief Executive of the Scottish Crofting Federation, said:

This is a book that has been awaited since crofting law was formed, a book that lays out what the, notoriously difficult to navigate, ‘sea of legislation’ is about.

Andrew McCornick, President, NFU Scotland, said:

Brian Inkster is to be congratulated on unravelling the complexities of crofting law into a practical guide that is comprehensive and yet can be easily understood. I am sure this will prove to be a very useful guide to current crofters and those with an interest in crofting.

Katy Dickson, Former Head of Policy, Scottish Land & Estates said:

Brian’s book is an accessible overview of a complex legal specialism which would be a useful addition to the shelf of anyone involved in crofting.

Tavish Scott MSP, Co-Convener of the Scottish Parliament Cross-Party Group on Crofting, said:

This is an extremely helpful guide to crofting law which will help all who have to navigate the Byzantine routes through the law of the land.

Sir Crispin Agnew of Lochnaw Bt QC, Chairman of the Crofting Law Group, said:

Brian’s new book is an invaluable practical guide to demystify crofting law.
