Product Description


This is a comprehensive account and analysis of landownership in Scotland. Drawing on a wide range of sources, it lists the owners of Scotland, and analyzes the current pattern of landownership and how it has evolved over the centuries. Illustrated with maps of all 33 Scottish counties, the book documents the ownership of 75 per cent of Scotland, listing not only the legal owners but also the people behind the companies and trusts which own the country. It details the extent of land held by overseas interests, the aristocracy, companies, charitable bodies and the state. This book is designed to inform and provoke. It reviews the history and politics of land reform in Scotland, analyzes the extent of available information on this controversial subject, and provides a critique of the existing ownership pattern and land tenure pattern. The book concludes by proposing a radical programme of land reform for a future Scottish parliament.
