The Scottish uplands are widely seen as an iconic and valued national asset, yet they are also the focus of long-running and acrimonious tussles over how they should best be managed. A 2015 issue of The Geographer explored many of these contentious issues, including land ownership, renewable energy, wild land, climate change, and the respective places of farming, forestry, and game sport. These all remain live debates. However, the world has moved on, bringing new perspectives and realities to bear on these long-standing discussions. This article provides a snapshot of this rapidly evolving picture, highlighting some of the salient issues and questions.
