History of ownership and designation of Fank Brae, Assynt

The request was successful.

assynt crofters trust

Dear Crofting Commission,

I would like to know the history of the ownership of the land known as Fank Brae, near Loch Poll, Assynt, since the land was purchased by Assynt Crofters Trust 25 years ago. I would also like to know how the land is currently designated, whether as croft land, common grazing or other, and how and when that designation came about. I also wish to know who was responsible for creating that designation, and what name or names are on any letters or other correspondence with you regarding this land.
Finally, in the event that the land is designated as common grazing land, what is the procedure to return it to the position it was prior to the change.
Yours faithfully,

Donald MacLeod

Dear Jacqueline MacBean,

Thank you very much for your reply.
We believe that the land in question was formerly owned by Assynt Crofters' Trust and was added to Culkein Drumbeg common grazings some years ago. Could you therefore please let us know what information you have concerning any additions to Culkein Drumbeg common grazings since 1993, to include the date when the land was added, and any correspondence you have regarding the addition.
Thank you for your help

Yours sincerely,

assynt crofters trust
