This policy spotlight is the first in a series of five that address the key, persistent challenges of rural housing, depopulation, and exclusion/marginalisation, and look backwards to review the evolution of rural and island policy, and forwards to future challenges and opportunities for rural and island Scotland. It provides some context as to what we mean by rural areas and communities and how we perceive the persistent challenges. The other spotlights in this series are: Rural and Island Policy in Scotland, Introducing the Rural, Population and Migration in Rural Scotland, Housing in Scotland's Rural and Island Communities, and Social Exclusion and Marginalised Voices in Scotland's Rural and Island Communities.
