Winning snaps

Some people can be convinced of the merits of community land ownership simply by reading a well written book. For others, hearing someone who is involved in community land ownership just talking about it might do the trick. For most however, the greatest impact is made by actually visiting a community and experiencing at first hand the transformation that can occur. For those who need some encouragement to go and visit, take a look at the winners of Community Land Scotland’s photo competition. Amazing pics.


Community Land Scotland

We received over 200 entries for the photography competition which ran from June to November of this year. The fantastic range of entries show off the wonderful scenery, people, wildlife and everything else which makes Scotland’s areas in, and aspiring to be in, community ownership special.

Huge thanks to all who entered the competition, and thanks to Skye-based photographer Cailean Maclean who judged the competition.
