This article considers the impediments to the development of small run of the river hydro schemes (RR hydro schemes). We consider the impact, if any, of the modern statutory rules on water rights and water uses, under the Water Environment and Water Services (Scotland) Act 2003 (WEWS) and its associated regulations alongside the potential impact on RR hydro schemes of the rights of other users of rivers. Finally, the authors also examine the crofters’ rights in crofts and common grazings under the Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993.
