Abstract

When Scotland’s new land laws were approved this year, it marked the end of a process that has run for most of the current five-year parliament. Landownership was arguably ripe for change: in egalitarian Scotland, a reported 50% of private rural land is owned by fewer than 500 people and entities, and landownership has not been liberated in the way that it has in some nearby countries.
