Arguing to maintain the status quo
The sensitivities around Raasay, were no doubt heightened because of the Government’s renewed focus on land reform and the work of the Land Reform Review Group. Given the nature of the remit given to the Review Group, it’s no surprise that many private landowners are worried that the long established patterns of land ownership may be about to change . These concerns are reflected not just by the size of their written evidence to the Review Group (230+ pages) but in a short promotional film, both of which try to argue for the status quo.
The trade body of Scotland’s private landowners, Scottish Land and Estates has published its response to the Land Reform Review Group.
