Abstract

Wild land is an important component of Scotland’s natural environment. Scottish Planning Policy highlights that wild land character is displayed in some of Scotland’s remoter upland, mountain and coastal areas with a strong sense of remoteness, ruggedness, lack of human artefacts and perceived naturalness. SNH has identified 42 Wild Land Areas, and this report provides evidence on the benefits and constraints associated with wild land.
