Shaping the landscape

Although Scotland’s landscape is a much prized national asset, when trying to understand exactly why it looks as it does, a much more complex picture is revealed. The forces of nature over millennia have combined with multiple human interventions to produce a landscape that many now argue has become constrained in its potential to deliver the maximum benefit for the country. Fascinating interview with land reform expert, Andy Wightman (filmed in the landscape), in which he explains why the landscape looks as it does and how, if we chose to, it could be transformed.
