Half of Scotland’s land is privately owned by just 432 owners and a mere 16 owners hold 10% of Scotland. We believe that a more socially just Scotland means more land owned by a wider proportion of Scotland’s citizens. Research shows that land owned by communities empowers these communities to make decisions and take actions that serve both the community as much as the planet. Communities have a much deeper and more intimate understanding of the
land they live on and own and this means that they can care for the land in a much more considerate ecologically minded manner.
