Abstract

Concern about who owns Scotland, and how much of it they own, has been central to the land reform debate for decades. While many people are utterly convinced that landownership is a key determinant of rural development outcomes, others insist it is irrelevant, and what is important is how land is managed. The Scottish Government wants to create a more diverse pattern of land ownership and asked the Scottish Land Commission to investigate the issues associated with large scale and concentrated land ownership. In early 2018 the Commission did this by inviting people with experience of living and working in such areas to share their experiences.
