This paper reassesses the perennial Scottish land question following the passage of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016. It largely builds on an earlier article written in the aftermath of a similarly named statute, the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, reflecting on developments that have taken place since then. That article concentrated on community rights of acquisition. New community rights will be an important part of the analysis here, but the opportunity will also be taken to comment on other provisions in the 2016 Act that form a more holistic land reform package than the 2003 Act.
